*Policy and Procedures Revisions*
a. Each year two children (one child in the three-year-old program, and one child in the four-year-old program) may be awarded a full scholarship to attend Glenbrook Preschool Society. The purpose of the scholarship is to enable families, who for financial reasons would be otherwise unable to, to enroll their child in preschool.
b. Each family’s scholarship application (Exhibit VI) will be confidentially reviewed by the Scholarship Committee, which includes the Program Coordinator and Parent Advisory Committee President, and Treasurer Assistant. The Treasurer Assistant must be a parent of a child in the current year the application is being reviewed. If the position of Treasurer Assistant does not have a child enrolled, either the Payroll Administrator or the Registrar can fill in the second position on the Scholarship Committee. In the event the applicant is a member of the Scholarship Committee then an alternate PAC will be chosen by the PAC.
c. Scholarship applicants must meet the following criteria:
i) The child is currently enrolled at Glenbrook Preschool Society, or a sibling of the child has been previously enrolled
ii) If the child is currently enrolled at Glenbrook Preschool Society, he/she must have a good attendance record
iii) Families currently receiving subsidy directed toward the preschool are not eligible
d. The following documents must be included in a family’s scholarship application:
i) Record of Employment, if family is applying for the scholarship due to a change in employment status
ii) Completed Glenbrook Preschool Scholarship Application
iii) Proof of ineligibility for government subsidy
e. Once all documents are reviewed by the Scholarship Committee, the teachers are asked for their input, and a final decision is made by the Scholarship Committee.
ii)A child must turn three on or before December 31 of the preschool year. A child may register for the program prior to their third birthday (paying the non-refundable registration fee and June tuition), however if the class registration becomes full, regular tuition payment is required to hold the child’s position until their third birthday.
We adhere to Alberta Health Services policy. Cleaning and sanitizing of equipment and surfaces is done regularly after every class. Anyone presenting with ANY cold/flu symptoms and/or a temperature, will not be permitted to enter the building.
