School Referrals


The Admissions Process

Children are accepted to the  Children’s Centre School Authority through a referral process. Referral packages are reviewed by the Admissions Committee whose members include the School Principal, the Liaison Teacher and the Manager of Clinical Services. 

Decisions for admission are based on variety of factors including entry criteria, availability of spots, and student groupings.
