West Point Grey Daycare’s license allows for 12 children per day. While we are mindful and understanding of the difficulties families face trying to place their child in a group license daycare in Vancouver, please note that we are unable to give you a specific start date, specific number on the wait list, or to guarantee that your child will be offered a space. If you choose to apply for our wait list there will be a wait time of a minimum of 6 months (usually it takes 12 months) and we will not be able to offer or confirm a space until it opens up. We no longer accept applications past the age of 24 months due to our current wait times. We appreciate your understanding and patience and we also appreciate you choosing to enrol your child at West Point Grey Daycare.
Our wait list for spaces in 2020 is now closed, as we have reached the maximum number of applicants. We are currently accepting applications for 2021.
Wait times for our centre can take 12 months or longer, so we kindly request that you please do not send a waiting list application if your child is 24 months or older, as we can only accept children up to 36 months.
*No e-mails confirming applications will be sent out. Once your cheque is deposited, your child has been added to the list. Cheques are deposited at the end of each month. Please contact the centre if you have any questions.
*A non-refundable $25.00 wait list fee and complete application form are required to be added to the wait list. Please mail the application form and cheque to the daycare. Receipts will not be issued. Paying the $25.00 does not guarantee a space in the program.
