Financial Assistance

Financial Assistance For Your Family

We believe strongly that participation in programs at Premier Academy provide far more than just the acquisition of new skills.  There are many life lessons and leadership skills that can be learned through our programs.

Unfortunately, participation in programs is not always financially feasible for some families.  There are a number of supports available to families to ensure that their participation in programs is more affordable.

Premier Academy Parent Association

The Premier Academy Parent Association is a non-profit organization that provides ongoing fundraising opportunities to members of Premier Academy.  All fundraising goes directly to those who are fundraising to help offset the cost of participation in programs at PA.

Each organization provides a variety of fundraising activities from special events, product sales, bottle drives and more.  Participation in all of the opportunities is NOT required.  You can select which fundraisers you would like to participate in throughout the year.

Membership is required to participate.

Subsidy

Premier Academy Red Deer is a licensed facility-based program and as a result, members registered in our Preschool or Kids Camp programs (PD Days, Holiday Camps, Summer Camps) have access to apply for subsidy through the Alberta Government.

Subsidy rates vary based on the child’s age, family income, the child care program and the number of hours a child attends each month. Types of subsidy include:

  • – subsidy for children 0 to kindergarten-age (in kindergarten and also attending child care during regular school hours)
  • – subsidy for children in kindergarten to grade 6 enrolled in a licensed program outside of regular school hours
  • – preschool subsidy for children enrolled in a licensed preschool program
  • – extended hours subsidy for children who require care outside regular hours
