Parent Info


The staff are responsible to plan activities and routines that reflect the ages and needs of the children in care.  Activities will be planned to meet the developmental needs of all children to enhance their growth socially, physically, intellectually, creatively and emotionally. Toys, equipment and materials required to present activities are provided at the Centre. Staff will ensure that these items are safe and suitable for the children using them. Days will be organized to include routines and activities with the day being flexible and sensitive enough to allow time for individual needs.  While the expectation is that activities be planned and implemented, it is essential that staff be sensitive to the children in care and flexible enough to adapt the daily routine.

The Centre staff will ensure that all requirements of health, safety and nutrition are being maintained.  These areas are critical to a child's well being and will be treated as such.


Communicable diseases such as colds, flu, vomiting or diarrhea can spread quickly in group care.  If your child is not feeling well, please keep them home.  If your child becomes ill during the day, you will be notified to come and pick up your child. This is done in the best interest of your child and the other children in care. Only prescribed medication with signed parental consent will be administered.

The Centre will provide two nutritious snacks, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Parents will provide all other food the child requires during the day. In case of allergies and special diets, the parent must inform the staff of all necessary information.  Parents will provide all food for special dietary requirements.
