Our premises are regularly inspected by the Health and Fire Departments. The license is renewed yearly by the Ministry after thorough inspection. Our preschool is in compliance with the building code.
A non-refundable registration fee is payable upon enrollment or re-enrollment of the child every year. All parents are required to pay one month in advance to secure their child’s place. This advanced payment is credited to the last month attending the Toddler Program when the child is of age to move to the CASA Program. At this time, the parent is required to pay one month in advance for the current or upcoming academic year. The deposit is non-refundable in case of a withdrawal by the parent or legal guardian after three consecutive weeks in the program. In addition, if the child is withdrawn from the program part-way through a month, the balance of that current month is non-refundable. There are no changes in fee payment due to illness or vacation.
All NSF (non-sufficient funds) cheques will have a $ 35.00 service charge. No exceptions.
You are required to give one month notice for the withdrawal of your child from the program.
Parents and legal guardians only are eligible for a tax receipt. These are given out at the beginning of February.
We can only administer prescribed medicine. A Medication Authorization Form must be completed by the parent/guardian when the medication is given to the staff upon your child’s arrival. Extra forms can be found by the main entrance door.
The school provides a morning and afternoon snack and hot lunch to the children attending the all-day program. These are included in the monthly fees. If your child attends the morning session only, the lunch is included in the monthly fee because the children have their lunch at an earlier time than the dismissal time. All hot lunches are prepared in our own kitchen and have the quality of a tasty home-cooked meal. The two week menu cycle is posted on the Parent Information Board by the main entrance door.
THE SCHOOL IS A PEANUT AWARE ENVIRONMENT.
Please ensure that your child has his or her favourite blanket and stuffed animal for the afternoon nap.
Every child will have an assigned bin in the diaper changing area. Please provide enough diapers and wipes for the day, as well as facecloths and a towel. The last two items will be returned to you at the end of the week for washing. Please ensure that the above items are returned to the daycare on the following week.
The child can only be released to the person(s) recorded on the signed document that we have on file. However, some unforeseen occasions may occur. Parents/guardians are asked to contact the centre and to give the name and description of the person to whom the child is to be released. In turn, we are obliged to ask for ID from that person.
