Hours of Operation:

Children’s Village Daycare is opened from 6:30 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. Monday to Friday, twelve months a year. 

Late Departures:

 Late fees will apply if your child is not picked up prior to 6:00 P.M.  A late fee of $10.00 for each 10 minutes after 6:00 P.M. will be charged and is to be paid directly to the staff that has to work overtime with your child.  If your child has been late for more than 3 times child care may be discontinued.

For parents who are late picking up their child after 6:00 PM the following steps will be taken by the staff on duty:

At 6:05 the staff will attempt to contact the parents at work and home.  If parents cannot be reached, staff will call the emergency contacts to pick up your child.

If no contact has been made at 6:30 PM the staff will contact the police for assistance (check accidents, hospitals etc.) then the staff may contact Chatham Kent Children’s Services, Children’s Aid to provide care for your child.

Absentee Policy:

Because our expenses remain the same, we regret that we cannot reduce fees in weeks that your child may be absent.  Extended absents will be dealt with at the discretion of the Administrator.

Vacation Policy:

There will be a waiver of fees for two weeks vacation purpose during each 12 month period.  The waiver is contingent upon prior written notice.  Your 12 month period begins the month your child is enrolled.

Withdrawal Procedure:

Children’s Village Daycare is committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment for all children in our care.  In partnerships with the families, Children’s Village work to ensure the individual needs are met.  When issues of concern arise, expressed either by staff or family the parent and supervisor will meet to assess strategies, services and supports in response to the issue of concern.  If Children’s Village is not able to accommodate the requests or needs of the family the following procedures will be taken:

  • All verbal and written communication with the parent and program staff will be documented indicating the date, issue of concern, actions and strategies that were put in place to resolve the concern.
  • The executive director along with the supervisor will determine our capacity to provide the required service.
  • The Municipality of Chatham Kent, Children’s Services Division will receive notification from the Executive Director that the child has been withdrawn or denied service with rationale and actions.
  • The family will be provided with 2 weeks written notice to find alternate care, unless the behavior/situation threatens the immediate safety of either children or staff in the Centre.

Schedules:

All schedules or changes in regular schedules are due by 5:00 PM Thursday for the next week.  After this time space will not be guaranteed and will be subject to availability.  Staff schedules are completed Friday morning and no changes which require any change of staffing will be granted.
