Program Waitlists*

If your desired program is full, you will have the ability to add your child to a waitlist. Families will be contacted via email as openings occur throughout the school year. 

Program Withdrawal

If you wish to withdraw from any of our Schoolmates programs, please contact PRD at [email protected]. The deadline to withdraw is by the 25th prior to the next month of service (i.e. November withdrawal deadline is October 25th). Once withdrawn, PRD cannot guarantee a space will be available should you wish to return to Schoolmates.

Those interested in enrolling must re-register via CommunityPass to add their child back to the Schoolmates roster, and in some cases, waitlist. Invitations to waitlisted families will take place as openings occur via email (typically at the end of each month) and families will have 48 hours to reply back to be added to the following month's roster.

For more information regarding enrollment, waitlists or withdrawals, please contact Jessica Pomey
