Our program is 3 days per week (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday) for 2.5 hours. For entry in September, children must be 3 by December 31st. Children who turn 3 before the end of March are welcome to start in January.

Please note that the AM class consists of primarily 3 year olds and the PM class consists of primarily 4 year old children.

For the 2023/2024 school year starting in September, class times will be as follows:

AM classes will run from 9:15am-11:45am
PM classes will run from 12:45pm-3:15pm.


A registration fee of $90 is collected when you register. This fee is non refundable.

To confirm your child/children’s enrolment at ULP, a non-refundable deposit equal to one month’s tuition will be required at the time of registration. This is in addition to the registration fee and will be applied to your June tuition.

Tuition is the same for both the AM and PM programs. For the 2023/2024 school year, tuition is as follows:

Monthly: $323 Tuition + $12 Snack Fee = $335

The cost of enrolment for one school year is $3350 per year.

In previous years, class sizes ranged from 16-18 children. However, due to COVID-19, we will be limiting the class size to 14 children in the AM program and 16 children in the PM program. Tuition will now also include a snack for your child each day, as well as enhanced cleaning protocols. Due to COVID-19, we are not able to accommodate outside snacks.
