Waitlist Registration and Fees

Contact Us Waitlist

Due to the high demand for our program and our limited spaces, creative minds maintains a wait list. Families will be accepted into the program in the order that their waitlist entry was received.

If a family accepts a space they are invited to come to the Centre within 24 hours of having the space offered to them Securing a space requires a $100 non refundable registration fee and a deposit of $500.00.

If a family decides to vacate the spot anytime after the deposit is paid, but before they begin the program, they must provide one full calendar month’s notice on the first day of the month in order to receive a full refund. If less notice is received, no refund of the deposit. The Centre Director will make every effort to fill the vacant space and refund the deposit if possible.  Join the Waitlist

Eligibility to attend
Creative Minds thrives on the diversity and rich collective heritages of the families in the immediate and wider community. All families and their children are eligible to attend Creative Minds Early Learning Centre. Creative Minds Early Learning Society and its employees do not discriminate on the basis of source of income, family status, political or religious belief, race, colour, gender, marital status, age, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, physical or mental disability, sexual orientation, or any other prohibited grounds of discrimination.
The majority of the children reside in the immediate neighbourhood, including the Musqueam Reserve. Other families come from various parts of Greater Vancouver including Burnaby and Richmond.

  • Enrolment is open to children 2.5 years of age through school age (grade 1)
  • There is a maximum number of two, 2.5 year old children at any one time.
  • The majority of children are 3 and 4 years of age.

There is a non-refundable registration fee of $100. Fees are due on the first day of the month and 12 months of post dated cheques are required and receipts for payment are issued every January.
There is a deposit required at the time of registration which will be returned upon adequate notice of withdrawal (2 months).

We make every effort to support schedules of attendance that fit family needs. Everything from 1 day per week to 5 days a week is a possibility. However, we cannot guarantee that all requests can be fulfilled as we must keep to licensing regulations that determine numbers of children and staff requirements.
