childcare in the sea to sky corridor is limited; especially infant & toddler care. we encourage you to join the waitlist as soon as you know you’re expecting.
Mountain Minis Childcare is a licensed facility, governed by Vancouver Coastal Health's licensing regulations. Therefore, we follow the age and class size requirements; which means there are limits on the number of children we can have in any one of our classrooms- based on age.
We have firm policies and procedures surrounding the management of the waitlist. We manage 24 childcare spaces for children 6 months to 5 years. Spaces are offered on a first come first serve basis based on date of the pre-enrollment form and the requested start date for care. A program space will be offered only to a child who qualifies for that program or who will qualify for that program within 30 days. Childcare spaces cannot be assigned. A child is accepted for one space, and only that child may use that space.
We have a waiting list with times varying, averaging up to two years. The age of the child and type of care wanted affects waiting list times. Our Junior Program has the longest waitlist and families apply many months and sometimes years in advance of actually needing care. All vacancies are filled in accordance with licensing regulations and consideration of your placement on our waitlist.
Note: We charge a non-refundable $25 administration fee.
