How many volunteer hours do I need?
10 hours of volunteer time are required per child registered in the 3 Year Old Tues/Thurs class and 15 hours of volunteer time are required per child registered in the 4 Year Old Mon/Wed/Fri class. These hours need to be completed by the end of the current school year in order to keep your Volunteer Bond. If a child registers and begins class later in the year, the volunteer hours and volunteer bond will be prorated based on the month the child starts.
How can I fill my volunteer hours?
There are many different ways to complete the hours required. There are volunteer positions in the classroom and out. Many positions can be completed in the evenings or on weekends such as toy cleaner or play dough maker. These positions are available to sign up for at the Annual General Meeting held in September. We also have special events where you can get yor volunteerig done in 1 shift. The Board Member positions require a 1 year commitment (July-June). Contact the volunteer coordinator to find out which positions are available.
Can I bring siblings into the classroom while I volunteer?

Children are required to bring a backpack with a complete change of clothing (that will stay at the Playschool in the event of an accident), as well as a healthy snack and water. Indoor shoes that they leave at school are also required.
