Dearcroft Community COVID-19 Update

Dear Parents,

As we begin this virtual journey together, for the time being while our physical campus has been mandated to close, our team of highly professional, experienced and passionate educators, who are entirely dedicated to your child’s needs regardless of the circumstances we face, remain available and accountable to you during school hours.  Countless hours of preparation and curriculum development have gone into this collective effort to continue being supportive as we move forward together with our work.

Once this mandated closure is over, we will be in a position to return to campus and carry on providing top quality care and programming for your children in the manner we would all prefer.  In the meantime, given our financial obligations as a business, we are not in a position to provide refunds at any level of the school, in order to be able to maintain the campus and staffing required upon our return.  As we work through this fluid period, with monthly April tuition payments due, if you are in a difficult situation financially at the moment, please reach out to us directly by email.  As we engage multi-faceted approaches to maintain all aspects of school operations, we are working closely to support our incredible staff who have continued to work tirelessly through this entire time.  

As we launch our on-line platform that we have developed in response to the mandated closure, we are confident you will find much, if not all, of the content to be useful tools and resources for you, as well as your child.  In addition, it will give your family the ability to stay connected with your child’s teachers and the Dearcroft community at large.  We will be sending login details to all families on Sunday and the site will launch on Monday.  We do ask that you take some time to get familiar with the site going forward and take full advantage of the content and connectivity as features are continually added.  Your feedback on the resources provided will be most welcome!

Please know that we are here for you…our building may be temporarily unavailable, but we remain here to support you as we navigate the conditions of these extraordinary times.

Annual Dearcroft Christmas Party

Please join us as we transform Dearcroft into a Winter Wonderland full of holiday cheer! This  festive evening of light munchies and loads of entertainment will be fun for the whole family!
Ten Thousand Villages will be on site providing the opportunity to shop for some “gifts from the heart” with ten percent of proceeds going towards the Ocean School initiative. Each class is creating a gift basket to be raffled, with proceeds also going to Ocean School. Santa Claus will make a special visit between 6:30 – 7:00 p.m. Get into the holiday spirit with a craft, or if you are feeling very energetic, My Gym Oakville will help get our joyous sillies out with lots of movement and gymnastics! Stop by the ‘Parent Lounge’ to enjoy a yummy cocktail with tasty appetizers! Last, but not least, we will be joined by the children’s entertainer Bumbling Bert the Magician at 7:15 p.m.

Thank you to our sponsors of the Parent Lounge
