Responsibilities

Parents & Guardians

As part of our safety procedures, the daycare is responsible for your child from the moment they arrive at Daycare until they leave; therefore, parents are required to bring their child into the daycare and make sure an educator knows they’re there and sign-out their children daily by initialing in the proper space on the sign-out sheets. Children must not be left alone in the yard. Once a parent has arrived, they are responsible for their child.

Parents are asked to please remain in the area in front of the Daycare office when picking up their children and are not to circulate in the Daycare rooms, school hallways or classrooms without special permission (in extreme circumstances).

Parking for drop-off in the morning is the daycare parking lot, however during pick-up at night you are also allowed to park in the bus lane up top but only after 2:45.

Note also that there is no driving eastward on Crescent Drive between 7:00 am and 8:30 am. Which means you cannot go onto the street by travelling off of Vanier Rd.

If, for whatever reason, there is a change to a child’s schedule the parent is responsible for communicating that change to the Daycare Technician. If no change has been confirmed, the child will stay at daycare as planned to ensure their safety.

Please keep all schedules, contact information and calendars for joint custody current and provide written confirmation when possible.

Parents are expected to encourage their children to respect their school and daycare.

Parents are encouraged to maintain positive communication with the staff and are to bring any questions or concerns to the attention of the Daycare Technician.

It is the parent’s responsibility to keep all Daycare payments up to date and in full at all times.

Parents must provide a pair of indoor shoes with rubber soles specifically for daycare.

Parents should provide an email address where we can send forms, notices etc.

Complete the registration.

Children

Children must be respectful to the adults, the other children and the environment. The children must play safely and abide by the daycare’s rules and regulations. The children are not to circulate in the school without authorization from an educator. Children are responsible for their own belongings and cannot go back to a classroom after the end of the regular school day.

Parents are advised that expensive and highly sought after toys need to be left at home. Daycare is not responsible for lost or damaged toys. Additionally, children tend to quarrel over toys. The daycare provides toys, games and equipment, therefor, leave all personal belongings at home. Furthermore, in accordance with school policy, no electronics are permitted at the daycare.

In our environment, it is very important that we establish clear, fair and precise limits. These limits must be applied equally, throughout the day, by our entire team. As a result, if a student fails to respect our policies, or instructions, natural consequences will be determined, and applied, by that student’s educator for that particular instance. Naturally, the degree of consequence will vary based on the severity of the action and the amount of times the action has to be corrected.

 Daycare

Financially it is the Daycare Technician’s responsibility to provide proper receipts for parents, maintain up to date records and to issue an annual income tax receipt when required by government law. The daycare’s main priority is to provide a safe and happy environment for the children. While maintaining positive, open communication with parents we will not only respect all environmental regulations concerning the care of children, but we will be respectful when we interact with the children and use every opportunity and resource available to enhance their development.

A notice of two paid weeks must be given if you plan to remove your child from the daycare before the end of the school year.
