Admission Policy

Children are admitted to all programs operated by Cheer Day Care Centre on a first-come, first-serve basis. Children with Special Needs will receive programs planned by the Special Needs Consultants who are recommended by the Ministry of Education.

Prior to enrolment, as required by the Toronto Public Health, each child must have an up-to-date record of immunization. All forms given to the family including policies, must be read, understood and signed. These policies are very important to Cheer Day Care Centre and must be followed.

Cheer Day Care Centre is licensed to admit children from 1.5 to 12 years of age.

As mandated by Government regulations, subsidized children must be promoted from the toddler classroom to the preschool classroom once they turn 30 months old. In the event that there are no available subsidized spots open in the preschool classroom, parents will be asked to make alternative arrangements for child care or they may continue to stay at our day care but have to pay full fee. Parents will be given notice of any child’s pending change in status a month before s/he turns 30 months old or whey s/he turns 4 years old.

Admission for Subsidized Spaces

If parent is eligible for subsidy, Cheer Day Care Centre must be provided with copies of application and supporting documents. Subsidy acceptance letter must be received by the Centre prior to attendance.

If parents wish to enrol their child at the Centre before subsidy acceptance, their child must pay the full fee until subsidy acceptance letter is received by the Centre.

Parents are responsible for the portion of fees that are not covered by subsidy and will be billed for these portions.

If parent becomes ineligible for any subsidy, they will responsible for paying the full fee.

It is the parent’s responsibility to keep all information current with the Child Care Subsidy Branch and Cheer Day Care Centre.
