Onoway Playschool Program 2020-2021 (Sept. 14, 2020 – Jun. 10, 2021)

To support families during this difficult time, the County has reduced fees for all students enrolled for the full 2020-2021 school year, pending full payment of fees or approved payment plan in place – fees will not be charged for the September through December 2020 portion. This will not only provide a savings to families, many who are struggling financially during this crisis, but also provide for flexibility without necessity of refunds should our school year calendar be affected (ie. delayed start) or if our class sizes need to be reduced during that timeframe.
