Money Matters

Payment is based on a pre-payment basis. Payments are due on Thursdays and are for the following week of childcare.  Payments are made weekly by post-dated cheques and are collected two months at a time.  A $30 NSF fee is charged for a returned cheque. The parent is also responsible for any fees I incurred due to the NSF.  After two returned cheques I will only be able to receive cash or EMT payments from your family. If payment is not received by Friday a $10/per day late fee is added onto your regular weekly fees and your child can not return into my care until that payment is made. 

A one week deposit is required during enrolment to show your commitment into the program and to hold your child's spot until their first day.  This one week deposit is held and used toward your child last week of care only when three weeks’ notice is given in writing.  Payment obligations are based on the hours and days parents arrange during enrolment, not on actual attendance. Parents sign a contract to book a space for their child in my program.  Weather your child attends the program or not I still have business expenses associated with ensuring that your space is there when you need it.  Therefore, a refund will not be issued if your child misses a day(s) of care.

I issue receipts for income tax purposes every March.
