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 4:30pm and 5:30pm. Late fees will be charged if a child is picked up late more than three times. Habitual lateness may 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 or vacation), absenteeism, epidemic health issues, weather closures, stat holidays or any closures listed on the School Calendar or through the School Newsletter.
All returned cheques are subject to a penalty of $50.00 each.
