There are a number of steps in our registration process. The first three steps can be completed now, and the following steps will need to be completed once your child has been accepted and placed in a class / program.
* Note: Application dates vary depending on the program (see details listed below).
Immediately after you apply for a class, your application will appear on your child's dashboard on the Parent Portal under "View Waitlisted Application." All applications are initially placed on a waitlist, until the applications have been processed by our Administration office. Once your application is processed, you can expect:

Create a family account on the Parent Portal so you can apply for classes, view waitlists, get important class updates, communicate with teachers, view account statements, and much more. To create a new account, click here.
Once you are logged in to the Parent Portal, you will need to add information for each child who will be attending Wind & Tide. To add a new child, click "Add New Child."
Once your child has been added to the Parent Portal, you can view current and upcoming classes, as well as request placement in one or more Preschool classes/sections; our Childcare centres, or any of our Development Programs. To apply for a class, from your Parent Portal dashboard, click "Apply for A Program" for the child you wish to register.
Here are some important things to remember when applying for classes:
In the first two weeks of November, all students who have applied for programs for the following school year will either be placed in a class or added to a class waitlist. You will be informed by email of your child's placement or waitlist status by mid-November (or within five business days at other times). The class placement email will contain all the details regarding payment requirements necessary to complete your child's registration.
When you have received the class placement notice, you can confirm placement by submitting the Registration fee and payment form. A Registration fee is only required once your child has been officially offered a position in a class (does not apply to waitlists). If the applicable Registration fee and payment form are not submitted by the deadline outlined in the placement email, it will be assumed that you are no longer interested in the class, and your child will be removed from the class.
After you have submitted the payment form, you will receive a registration confirmation email in addition to information about what will be expected in the months ahead, or before your child begins attending our program/class.
