We currently have wait lists for entry into all of our daycare programs, the length of time your child may be on a waitlist depends on the program and schedule required. Please email management @ shuswapdaycare@telus.net  to inquire about your specific needs. We recommend ALL parents call the local Child Care Resource and Referral @ 250-832-4191 for a list and contact information for other licensed childcare providers.

Infant & Toddler Program – Our infant and toddler program is licensed to accommodate 12 children per day. Many children in the program start at 12 months of age and will remain in the program until the age of 3. Our waitlist only has movement when a child ages out of program or withdraws. This program is currently running at full capacity until the end of 2025/2026 before we will see current waitlist move. 

3-5 Year Old Program – We are currently running at full capacity with a lengthy waitlist. All in house toddlers schedules are accommodated prior to waitlist moving. There seems to be a pattern that the waitlist in this program tends to move in the fall as we have children age when they start kindergarten.  

Out of  School Program – We are no longer accepting enrollment requests for the Out of School Program as we are running full and see very little turnover as our in house families move into that program if and when a spot opens up. If a child on the waitlist becomes school age and has not started at our centre they will be removed from the waitlist.

Pre-School Program – Preschool classes run September to June, following the same calendar schedule as school district #83. Registration opens January 1st each year, $25.00 non-refundable registration fee is due at time of registering and to secure your child’s spot in this program. All registration enquiries MUST be sent via Email to shuswapdaycare@telus.net with your child’s name, DOB, class preference Mon & Wed or Tue & Thur, parent contact info email/phone number. Management will send email to confirm there is room in requested class, at that time the $25.00 is due.
