Salmonberry Child Care Centre Waitlist

SVNH is planning to open Salmonberry Child Care Centre on October 01, 2021, which will include quality licensed programs for children 18 months to 5 years old. The starting date is tentative and may change.

Salmonberry Child Care Centre will be located at Fraser Street and Marine Drive at SVNH’s new Southside Hub location.

Waitlist registration will be open from July 12 to 16, 2021.

To ensure a fair process for filling our new spaces, all children who are registered on the waitlist by July 16 will have their name entered into draw.

Spaces, using the priorities noted below, will be offered starting July 21, 2021.

How Our Waitlist Works

Our waitlist is not on a “first come, first served” basis.

Parents must submit the waitlist registration form and pay a $25 non-refundable fee for each child that is added to the waitlist.

Priority for spaces is given to those families who we serve in the Sunset neighbourhood and to those that we can offer long-term service to, in the following order.

  1. Children who have been registered at our South Vancouver Neighbourhood House Preschool and/or Family Programs since January 2021 (i.e., Child attended Poppins Preschool January 2021 to current).
  2. Children with sibling(s) registered at our South Vancouver Neighbourhood House Preschool and/or Family Programs.
  3. Families living or working in Sunset (Ontario Street to Knight Street & 41stAve to the Fraser River).
  4. Families living or working in Vancouver.

To support children in the Toddler Program to move to the 3 to 5 Program, we need to maintain a balance of children's ages. This may impact the priority in which spaces are offered.

To be eligible for a space for October 1, 2021, all children must meet theses age requirements:

  • Toddler Program: Children must be at least 18 months old by October 01, 2021
  • 3 to 5 Program: Children must be at least 30 months old by October 01, 2021.

Note: If your child does not meet this age requirement, they will be placed on the waitlist for future spaces.

Please contact us at if you have any questions.  Thank you for your interest in Salmonberry Child Care Centre.
