Late Pick Up
The Preschool Centre’s hours are indicated in section 4.1 in the parent handbook Parents are responsible for organizing their schedule in order to respect our staff’s hours of work.
Parents picking up children past these set hours are subject to a late fine which is paid directly to the Educator on duty. In order to discourage any persistent problem with tardiness, the Board of Directors has established a policy regarding late pick up as follows:
- 1st late fine – $5.00 per child, per 15 minutes
- 2nd late fine – $10.00 per child, per 15 minutes
- 3rd late fine – $20.00 per child, per 15 minutes
Parents are responsible to pay fines at the time of pick-up to the Educator. If not paid, it will be added to the monthly fee.
Facility Closures – Storm Days
The Preschool Centre closes only when weather conditions are severe. The decision to close the Centre for a day or partial day, is made at the discretion of the Administrator. Closures that last longer than one day are decided by the Executive Committee. If the Centre is closed for the day, a cancellation will be announced on all local radio stations by 6:30am. In the event the Centre may close mid-day, parents will be called and given two hours’ notice and early closure will be announced on local radio stations.
