Enrollment process & Registration

How do I enrol?

The Early Childhood Education Centre (ECEC) maintains a wait list of families wishing to attend our program. We recommend you place your child on our wait list early.

For online application, please visit OneList Waterloo Region.

Create a parent profile and a child profile keeping in mind that the ECEC is listed under ‘centre-based’ programs at this time.  Put your child on the wait list for ECEC-University of Waterloo.  We will then contact you directly when a spot becomes available.

For more information see the parent handbook (PDF) .

If you have any questions about the ECEC One List wait list please contact Val Rozon, at 519-888-4567 ext. 33904 or vrozon@uwaterloo.ca.

Can I see the program?

When we call to offer a spot for your child we will invite you to a parent tour of the school. At this tour, we will outline our centre philosophy, review what a daily session looks like, answer your questions and view the centre. After your tour, you will have a day to make a decision and to follow through on your registration.

After you have formally registered we will invite you and your child to attend a play visit before their first day of school. This allows them to become familiar with their new school and teachers with you along for comfort and support.
