DROP OFF AND PICK UP OF A CHILD FROM DAY CARE:

  • No parking on the building side of the driveway during bus pickup and delivery times: 7:45 am to 8:30 am, 11:15 am to noon, or 3:20 pm to 4:00 pm.
  • Government regulations require parents to sign in and sign out their child each day, with a full signature, in ink, legibly.
  • Children must be signed out within the building, and exit via the front door.
  • The staff will not release a child into the care of a cab company.
  • If an alternate person is picking up your child, the Centre must be notified either in writing or via telephone, but not on a regular basis.  We have passwords in place to confirm that we are speaking with the child's parent who registered the child.
  • If an alternate comes to pick up your child, and the staff has not been notified, the child will not be released until we are able to contact the parent or your emergency contact person.
  • If no one comes to pick up your child after the Centre closing time of 6:30 pm, staff will attempt to contact you or your emergency contact person.  If staff is unable to reach anyone, the child will be kept at the Centre until 7:00 pm, and then Child and Family Services will be contacted to take over care of the child.  In addition, there will be an additional charge to parents for late pick up after 6:30 pm.
  • DO NOT come to collect your child while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.  Your child's safety is our number one priority!
  • The child care contract is entered into with the parent who completes the application form, therefore, any changes to the forms, including to whom the child may be released to, must be made by that parent. Any one who is not on the form for the child to be released to, will be denied access to the child.  The approved pickup persons must also present identification before child is released to them.
  • If the non-custodial parent whose name is not on the pick up list attempts to pick up the child insists and child caregiver makes the decision that the other children are at risk, then the child will be released to that parent and the police will be immediately contacted, as well as the other parent.   In these custodial situations where there is legal documentation of custody, copies will be required for the child's file.
  • Any request to remove or add a person to the pick up list must be done by the parent who contracted with us in writing.
  • Please contact the Centre before 9:00 am if your child will not be in on the regularly scheduled time.
