Fees are set annually according to the ongoing cost of operation. Parents will be given 2 months notice in the case of increased fees unless this period is waived by majority vote at the Annual General Meeting.
Our Fee Schedule is posted below.
FEE POLICY AND CLASSROOM PROGRESSION:
Fees are due in advance, on the first day of each month, for services to be provided for that month. The cheques should be made out to T.L.C. Daycare and deposited in the office. Post-dated cheques are submitted on a 12 month period following the new Fee Schedule. A penalty of $10.00 is charged for each late payment. NSF payments returned from the Bank will be subject to a processing fee of $40.00. Fees must be paid in full immediately upon return of a NSF cheque.
Parents are charged for all days of absence, sickness, holidays and vacation-unless otherwise notified.
As your child progresses from one classroom to the next, you will see a slight decrease in fees. Fees are linked to the room of residence. A child may remain in the Infant Room or Toddler Room after the specific age requirements of that room if space is not available in the next classroom. A child's progress through the various rooms is only loosely based on age. Individual development and space availability in the Centre are the main movement criteria.
Fee assistance is available through the Region of York for those who reside in that area. Please see the Director for further information and applications.
SUMMER PROGRAM FEES:
A fee of $30.00 is due each year in the summer for each child enrolled in the daycare. This money is then used for special activities and events.
For income tax purposes, a record of the previous year's fees paid to the daycare will be provided to all parents before the end of February of the following year. Fee receipts will not be issued until all outstanding fees and penalties are paid.
AFTER HOURS PENALTY:
If a child remains at the Centre past 6:00pm an overtime charge of $1.00 per child per minute will be levied. A late fee form will be filled out and signed by the staff on duty and by the parents/person picking up the child.
Invoices will be issued and money collected will be passed on to the staff on duty for the evening.If a parent is continuously late, the Director will meet with the parents to discuss this matter. If lateness continues, the child may be asked to leave Town’s Little Children Daycare.
PLEASE RESPECT THE CLOSING TIMES OF THE CENTRE AND REMEMBER THAT THE STAFF ARE ON THEIR OWN TIME AFTER 6:00PM.
