We are always excited to meet new families that share our values and approach to early child care and learning. A Tiny Lab maintains an active waitlist for both our Toddler and Preschool Classrooms. As spaces become available in our Toddler Room we consult our waitlist and offer spaces based on timing, need and age. There is no fee to file an application and we encourage any family interested in having their child at A Tiny Lab to do so.



Our waitlist is long, but spaces do open up on a regular basis throughout the year. We encourage families to apply well in advance if they are interested in joining our program.

To be added to our waitlist, please fill out our application form using the link below:



As of February 2018, our fee for full and part-time spaces is $45.50 per day per child. Fees are billed on a monthly basis and due by the 15th of each month. Fees may be paid by e-transfer, cheque or cash.


Nova Scotia’s Child Care Subsidy Program helps eligible families pay for childcare at licensed child care facilities. The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development provides subsidies to the child care facility on your behalf, reducing your daily fee. The subsidy is attached to your child. If you decide to change child care centres, the subsidy goes with you.

We encourage ALL of our families to review eligibility criteria to see if they qualify for the subsidy program. If you need assistance, we are happy to help families complete the application process for Child Care Subsidy.

Priority Spaces

When spaces become available in our Preschool Room they are first offered to currently enrolled Toddlers who will be aging out of the Toddler Room. Spaces are then offered to families on our waitlist based on the order that they joined the waitlist.

As a small, neighbourhood centre we give priority to families in the immediate area. We also give priority to families who currently have another child enrolled at A Tiny Lab.

Part-time spaces

We reserve a set number of part-time spaces in each of our classrooms. Part-time spaces are comprised of a 2 day/week space or a 3 day/week space. In some circumstances we may be able to accommodate changing your space or days, if availability allows. If you have your child enrolled in a full-time space and would like to drop down to a part-time space, you will be placed at the top of the wait-list for the next available part-time space.
