WOLO School of Arts & Flexible Child Care Centre
(By Miss Donna)
07/23/2017 - Hello Everyone! We are finally open and have been open for about 3 weeks now. We are getting ready for Fall 2017-18 and August camps. We have a lot of exciting new programs and need your support. If you have any questions, we now have a chat box on our website that allows you to message us directly. Our entire registration system is online through Amilia. However, we are currently updating and working on the user friendliness of our website. We understand it is an adjustment and we are learning lots on our end. Thank you for everyone's patience and continued support. We hope to see you at our centre. We know many of you are curious as to see what is happening and we are up and running. :*) Come join us for our Neighbourhood Block Party on August 20th from 2-6pm. It will be our first event to bring the neighbourhood together inside and at the back of our facility. Check it out here to show your interest: https://www.facebook.com/events/1186585434820439/
07/01/2017- We finally received our child care license from CCFL. Spaces open until December 2017. We will be opening July 4th for child care services and offering tours throughout next week. Please register online through Amilia here or call us at 604-829-1346 to schedule an appointment to come in. We apologize in advance for not being able to meet everyone's immediate needs. We appreciate your feedbacks and look to improve our services and communication. Our School of Arts will be open to the public soon. Stay tuned! We are offering a FREE Kiddie Art & Mini Art class on Saturday, July 8th for preschoolers and toddlers. Sign up for a free class here.
06/21/2017- New child care centre tour dates available! Click here to view our latest email: http://mailchi.mp/9b9b84f71892/more-child-care-centre-tour-dates-available
05/17/2017- After much discussion with our team, we regret that we are only able to offer the two group child care tours for now due to being occupied with opening the centre (as there is a lot of work behind the scenes). We have taken your suggestions for additional tour times and we will keep those times in mind for the future. We hope to offer more in the future and especially once we settle into our centre. If you are already on our waitlist and have paid for a deposit fee, then we will connect with you directly after we have secured our occupancy permit with City of Vancouver and finalized child care licensing protocols with CCFL. Thank you for your understanding as we begin on this new adventure and thank you so much for your patience.
05/16/2017-Thank you for everyone who has either booked a tour or who have paid for an initial membership at WOLO Flexible Child care Centre. We are getting back to you the next two days to confirm your tour date and information. If you have driven or walked by, you can now look through the windows and view our space! We are just waiting for our occupancy permit from the City of Vancouver and final approval from CCFL. At the School of Arts side, we will begin connecting with students and families on the waitlist next week for piano lessons and voice lessons. As for all current Happy Keys Music Piano students, we will be moving to the new centre by beginning of June 2017. A quick update on all day summer camps, we are unable to host all day summer camps at this moment in July but we will have mini summer camps instead. If we are able to offer all-day in August, we will keep everyone informed through our website and newsletter. We aim to offer these opportunities in 2018. Lastly, our online registration is currently not open as we need a few more days to complete the set-up. Thanks for everyone's patience!
05/04/2017-Hi everyone! It's Miss Donna and Miss Monica. Thank you for all the new viewers and to all our students and families who are still on our waiting list. Our space is still under construction as there has been a few delays, hence is why we are not able to specify an opening date. We are also working on the registration part of our programs and waitlist. Please be on the lookout soon and you will be updated if you are on our waitlist and subscription list. Thanks for everyone's patience while we continue moving forward. On a side note, Miss Donna is currently still teaching full-time while Miss Monica is a mommy with a toddler. Not an excuse but sharing the realities of opening up a new space and the demands. However, we are SUPER excited to finally get going. I hope you will be able to understand that we are going to continually work on improving the centre continuously but especially in the next several months. Progress over perfection. :) Now, if you have read this far then please meet all the new teachers we are adding to our team. Each one of them have their own unique specialty which is amazing. Ofcourse, Spring is finally back today!
04/01/2017- Thank you for everyone's patience. We are currently going through construction and our desire to open in the beginning of May has been delayed. We are now aiming for late May and early June. Thanks for understanding.
