The Day Nurseries Act of Ontario establishes that all children must be dropped off directly at Together We Grow, and be received by one of our staff. Together We Grow Learning & Childcare Centre is NOT responsible for children until a staff member receives them. Your children’s arrival will be recorded before you leave the Centre.
When you, as a parent, pick up your child, you have to alert staff members that your child is leaving the Centre. Your child’s departure must be recorded by a staff member before you leave the Centre. This is extremely important, especially when the children are on the playground. Your child will only be released to an adult who is listed on the Registration Form. We will ask this person to show ID.
The Centre's hours of operation are Monday through Friday, from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. After 6:00 p.m., parents will be asked to sign the Late Form and pay the staff on duty the $1.00 per minute late fee. After three (3) late recordings, a meeting will be set up between parents and the Supervisor to discuss alternative arrangements for pickup.
If your child is going to be absent for any reason please notify the Centre. This will prevent any calls to your home or work.
