What is advanced registration? 

For those families who know their child would like to participate in more than one session this year, we are offering options to register in advance for Winter and/or Spring within this Fall’s registration.

Advanced registration means you only complete one registration form (download form pdf here) and you pay the applicable discounted fee: $140 for 2 sessions and $200 for 3 sessions.  With advanced registration, your child is automatically assigned space in the sessions you have prepaid.

What if I pay for advanced registration but decide to cancel a future session? 

Sessions can only be cancelled prior to that session’s registration date.  The request to cancel must be in writing (please email:  homeandschool@northleaschool.ca), by the following dates:

  • Winter session cancellation: December 18, 2015;
  • Spring session cancellation: March 11, 2016.

Refunds will reflect a per session fee of $75 and may take a few weeks to process.

Do I still have the option to register on a session-by-session basis?  

Yes, as in previous years, you can choose to register for one session at a time. The fee is $75 per session.  Please use the registration form here.  Note the following registration dates (reminders will be posted on the website):
