At the time of enrolment parents sign a contract agreeing to the hours of operation of the school.  Parents and caregivers must be punctual to ensure the program runs smoothly for all children including their own.  The drop offs times are between 8am and 9am.  Pick-up times are between 4:00pm and 5:00pm.  Parents should inform the Facility when alternate timing for early pick-ups or late drop-offs.

This Facility closes at 5pm.  There is an expectation for all families to respect the teachers and their time.  They have families too.  Late fees will be charged if a child is picked up late more than three times.  Habitual lateness will result in withdrawal from the program.

Tuition is based on a yearly fee, which can be made in monthly installments. Exemptions from tuition are not available for absences, including illness and vacation time.  Tuition is not exempt for closures.  Closures include holidays and breaks listed on the School Calendar.  All closures will be given notice with the exception of short notice closures (weather, epidemic health issues, staff shortages due to epidemic health issues), which the Facility has no control over.

All returned cheques are subject to a penalty of $50.00 each.
