• A Christ-centred and Child-initiated Early Years Education

Admission and Fees

A. Registration

Complete and submit the forms from the registration package to the centre. To be eligible to enter the program, children must be at least 30 months old and toilet-trained.

B. Contract and Agreement

Once childcare has been offered and accepted, a contract package is put together and an orientation meeting is arranged between the parents and the centre. The legally binding contract clarifies expectations of the family and of the centre, including fee payments, withdrawal notice and health and safety issues.

If a registered child does not actually show up at the centre, and the current month’s fee has not been paid yet by the fifth day of that month, the child will be deleted from the program and the deposit will not be refunded. Families can re-apply, with a new application fee and deposit.

C. Fees

A $100 non-refundable registration fee and a $300 deposit are required within two weeks of acceptance of the position. The registration and deposit are payable by cash or cheque. Fees are monthly rates and include snacks.

How Tuition Fees Are Paid

    • Fees are payable by cash or cheque to IMAGO DEI Child Care.
    • Cheques should be dated for the first of each month.
    • Any returned cheques (NSF) will be subject to the a $20 bank service charge.
    • Yearly receipts for income tax purposes will be available in January each year for the previous year.

Tuition is due the 1st of every month and is considered late on the 5th of each month. Payments received after the 5th of the month will be charged a $20.00 late fee. Payments received later than the 10th of the month subjects the enrolled student(s) to dismissal from the program until the account is made current.

D. Withdrawal

At the time of withdrawal, the deposit can be refunded or will be applied to any outstanding debt. The contract requires one calendar month’s notice of withdrawal, and failure to provide that will lead to the loss of the deposit.
