MANDARIN CHILD CARE CENTRE
FEE POLICY

Upon registering your child or children into the child care centre, you must pay a $25.00 registration fee and one full month's fee for either the Child Care &/or After School program, paid in advance as a deposit. At the time of enrollment, both are payable. The deposit will be forfeited should you cancel your space without any advance notice after a confirmed spot has been allocated for your child. This deposit will be applied to your child's last full calendar month's fee provided at least one calendar month's written notice is given. Parents are responsible to pay child care fees for 12 months from January to December each year. This includes:

  1. 12 statutory holidays: New Year's Day; Family Day; Good Friday; Easter Monday; Victoria Day; Canada Day; Civic Day; Labour Day; Thanksgiving Day; Remembrance Day; Christmas Day; Boxing Day.
  2. The 8 days each year from Christmas Day to New Year's Day in order to completely clean and sanitize the centre.
  3. Family vacation time. (Except: any half month will be allowed without payment once a year, after the child has spent at least 6 calendar months at the Centre)
  4. Absence due to illness. (Except: half month refund - sick for more than one whole month with presentation of doctor's notes or the drugs prescription.
    Part-time spaces are offered when enrollment allows. Whenever possible, families will be matched up to share one child care space. Fees are paid monthly and are due by the last day of each month. There is a $10 per day late fee beginning on the third working day of the month. Postdated cheques for fees will not be accepted. Parents will be charged a service fee $25.00 for any N. S. F. cheques
    . If we need to change any tuition fees, we will give one month's advance notice. Otherwise, the tuition fees will remain the same as before.

The hours of operation are 7:30am - 6:00pm for the Child Care & After School Programs. Parents should make every effort to pick up their child on time. Whenever possible, telephone the centre to let the staff know you may be late. All parents are expected to pay the late fine as set out below. The fine is paid directly to the staff member who has stayed late to care for your child. At 6:30pm, Staff will contact the primary and secondary parent/guardian as listed on the child's emergency contact(s) will be called. Staff is required, by law, to contact the Children's Aid Society when a parent/guardian or alternate contact cannot be reached by 7:00p.m. The late fee charge is $1.00 per minute and the charge will begin when picking up your child after 6:05. During the late time, the teacher will care for your child until you come. Parents who develop a pattern of lateness will be requested to find a solution which ensures their child can be picked up on time. Should lateness persist, you may be requested to seek alternate daycare arrangements, as our hours of operation may not suit your needs.
