Gradual enrolment

When enrolling your child in the program it is advisable to allow sufficient time for gradual entry. Entry requirements can be arranged with the Senior Supervisor on an individual basis.

Withdrawal

When a child is to be withdrawn, at least one month's notice will be required in writing at the first of the month. In lieu of one month's notice, one month's fees must be paid.

Parents, students and staff involved at the Centre

Parents are valued participants in our program. They are encouraged to participate in the Centre as volunteers, observers or Board members. Parents and teachers talk briefly and informally every day as parents bring children to the Centre and call for them. Individual conferences may be arranged at any time during the year. Parents are welcome at any time.

All of the staff are fully qualified and have received certification from the Ministry of Health Provincial Child Care Facilities Licensing Board and Emergency First Aid Certificates.
