Attendance, Absence and Illness

Fees are based on enrolment, not attendance. No fee decreases for sick/missed days or statutory holidays will be provided.

In order to allow children to settle into the program and maintain the continuity and smooth operation of the child care setting, all children are requested to arrive by 9:30 a.m. Should a child be sick or be arriving late, parents are asked to notify the staff by 9:00 a.m.

In assessing a child’s wellness and ability to participate and remain at the centre, staff must take into consideration a number of factors including:

  1. the risk of spreading of illness;
  2. the child’s ability to participate comfortably in the program.

The staff will complete an Illness Form if there is any change in the health or well being of a child during the day. Parents are encouraged to arrive at the Centre promptly if they receive a phone call from a staff indicating that their child is ill and must be picked up.
