Evergreen offers day programs for children ages 30 months to 5 years. In order to attend children must be potty trained (we are able to assist with toileting but are unable to accommodate those still in diapers). Each day of the week features a different educational theme. Regardless of which day you choose, your child will participate in group and individual activities, games, crafts, physical education, music, and more! There will also be many opportunities to explore our community. The daily schedule, found here, outlines our activities and routines (such as snacks, rest periods, etc.) for each day.
The programs run daily from 8:30am to 3:30 pm. Extended hours are available if necessary.

Fabulous Fridays (Social Studies, Community, Character Education, Arts, Physical Activity, and more!)
Each child can register for any one, or all, day(s) of the week, but are not able to alter days on a week-to-week basis. (Meaning that if you sign up for Monday Phonics you cannot attend the program on Tuesdays unless you have registered for Talented Tuesdays as well). Please note that we require a minimum of 4 children in a program before it is able to run. If the program you choose is not available due to insufficient enrolment, you may choose another avaiable day, or request a full refund.
A $25 registration fee must accompany the registration form and is only refundable if we are unable to accept your child based on availability of space for the requested program.
Once acceptance (availability of space) is confirmed you will need to complete all applicable forms listed on the parents page here. Our parent handbook can also be viewed on the Parents Page of our website.
An enrolment contract will be drawn up with your particulars (days/extended hours/etc.) and will also list each payment date and the amount that is due. This must be signed by both parents and returned before your child begins his/her program.
Program Fees: The daily fee for a Stepping Stones program is $45 (includes a lunch, and 2 snacks) or $38/day if you opt out and send your own snacks, drinks and lunch. The fees are payable in monthly instalments. You are not responsible for program payments on days when the school is closed for holidays (as indicated in purple on our calendar). You are, however, responsible for program payments on days when your child is absent due to illness or personal vacation.
Extended hours are available for 1 hour in the morning (7:30am - 8:30am) and 1 1/2 hours after the program (3:30pm - 5:00pm) at the following rates: 7:30-8:30 = $5 8:00-8:30 = $2.50 3:30-4:00 = $3.50 3:30-4:30 = $6.50 3:30-5:00 = $10
School Day Programs
A typical school day runs from 8:30am to 3:30pm (this is slightly longer than a typical school day to incorporate additional learning opportunities). The school year runs from September until the end of June. A school year calendar will be available prior to the beginning of each school year, and will include school closing on all major holidays as well as a Christmas break.
Grade School Program - This program is for students in Grades 1 to 6 and will follow the Ontario Curriculum. A primary timetable can be viewed HERE. Please note that this is not an official timetable, only a sample. Also please keep in mind that our schedule will be fluid and flexible allowing us to explore new learning opportunities when they arise. We also intend to include exploration of our community as part of our learning experiences. *We are currently not running the Grade School program, but with enough interest we would LOVE to get it up and running!!
If you have a child between the ages of 2 and 13 we've got some great programs for you! Information on our Story Clubs and After School Clubs is on our Kids' Club page HERE. Check back often to see new program offerings. OR, you can also keep up-to-date by liking our Facebook Page.
Private tutoring fees at Evergreen are currently $25 for a 30 minute session and $35 for an hour. We offer tutoring for children from pre-school straight through secondary school.
