The Early Years Centre is looking for children who will be attending school for the first time in September 2012 and who have not participated in a nursery school/preschool or Early Learning and Care centre.  Families who are interested in the program should visit www.wocrc.ca and download an application form.  Families will be carefully screened to ensure that they are a good fit for the program.  Applications accepted in person or by calling 591-3686 x545.

The Early Years Centre will be offering 2 more sessions of School’s Cool in the year to come, so if families are finding that their child is too young or not quite ready to attend this session, there is another option.  Live elsewhere in the city?  Contact your local Ontario Early Years Centre as they will also be offering the program in the months to come.
