How to apply

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 wait-list for both our Toddler and Preschool Classrooms. As spaces become available in our Toddler Room we consult our wait-list 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.

** Due to demand and limited availability, our waitlist is currently closed.** 

Our next major intake period will be for September 2018. Any available extra spaces will be posted here and on our Facebook and Twitter page in June 2018. Please note that changes to the Provincial funding model for licensed child care had limited our ability to add more spaces. 

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.
