Mid-year Registration Available
Students can start at any age, regardless of Hebrew knowledge. We accept students starting in Junior Kindergarten, provided they are completely potty-trained and able to participate fully in class. If your child has an individualized learning plan or needs specific teaching approaches, please speak with Rabbi Emma before registration to make sure Makom Afterschool is right for your child.
We accept registration from early spring through the beginning of the school year, but will accept additional registrations once the school year begins if space allows. We do, however, often have a wait-list. Makom Afterschool runs September to June, concurrent with the school year. If you are moving or have other special circumstances, please contact us to discuss.

Tuition for children’s religious education is considered a tax-deductible charitable donation by the Canada Revenue Agency. Makom will issue tax receipts for the full amount of tuition paid.
A non-refundable 20% deposit is due at registration.
The balance of tuition can be paid at registration along with the deposit. Otherwise, the remainder is due immediately in four equal payments by cheque, dated September 1, October 1, November 1 and December 1. Cheques returned as non-sufficient funds are subject to a $40 fee per cheque.
If you require busing, you will pay for busing separately from tuition by June 1, with one cheque for all 10 months of busing. Note that the availability of busing is pending busing registration numbers.
- We require submission of all cheques for each child at time of registration.
- The tuition deposit is fully non-refundable.
- The transportation payment is fully non-refundable.
- After registration, if you withdraw your child from Makom Afterschool, the following timetable applies:
- June 1 and before: Refund of all tuition payments, except deposit
- June 2 - July 31: Refund of 50% of annual tuition, except deposit
- August 1 and afterward: Tuition is completely non-refundable
- If you decide to reduce the number of days your child attends Makom Afterschool once the year has started, you may do so, but we are unable to refund any tuition payments as class sizes and teaching staff have been determined according to registration numbers.
- Please note that children’s religious education tuition paid is considered a charitable donation by the Canada Revenue Agency. Therefore, in the event of a child’s withdrawal from Makom Afterschool, any non-refunded tuition payments will still be considered tax-deductible donations for which tax receipts will be issued.
- No exceptions will be made to this policy.
