Program Fees

Families who have a household income of less than $180,000/year can apply for a $125/month subsidy. Please visit: https://www.alberta.ca/child-care-subsidy.aspx

All monthly program fees have been decreased by $75/month thanks to the Alberta affordability grant, which is provided directly to Malmo Pre-Kindergarten.

If you are still interested in volunteering to make our preschool an even better place, please contact our VP (vice-president@malmopreschool.com). 

Holding Places

Children must be three years old in order to attend Malmo Pre-kindergarten. If a child does not turn three years old before the school year, they can start at the beginning of the school year with “visit days” where a parent/guardian must stay with them during the class.  A student can then attend class without an adult after their third birthday. Parents are still required to pay all monthly fees. This situation is dependent on the COVID-19 situation and guidelines and can be discussed with the Registrar when necessary.
