Contract Procedure And Deposits

Once an offer of child care has been accepted, the senior staff at the daycare will contact the parents to arrange an orientation meeting to take place before the child’s first day. A contract package will be available at the main child care office at 2881 Acadia Rd to be picked up by the parent prior to their orientation. The legally binding contract clarifies expectations of the family and the University including fee payments, withdrawal notice and health and safety issues. The signed contract and all required registration forms must be returned to the office before the child’s first day.

To confirm the position, a $300.00 deposit is required within two weeks of acceptance of the offer of child care. The deposit is payable by cash or cheque at the child care office or through our online service centre using your CWL to log in. At the time of withdrawal the deposit can be applied to the last month’s fee, refunded or applied to any outstanding debt. The contract requires one calendar month’s notice of withdrawal and failure to provide proper notice may lead to an additional month’s fee and/or loss of deposit. If a parent changes their mind after verbally accepting a position, or the child does not actually occupy the space, the application will be deleted from the waiting list and the deposit will not be refunded. Families can re-apply to the waiting list, with a new application date and fee. Any outstanding charges must be paid before a second offer of care will be made.
