Come and get’em!
Arrival should be punctual (between opening and 9:00am) for maximum play opportunities for your child. At WNS we consider timely arrival a valuable opportunity for your child to transition from your care to ours as it provides them with the time to make choices, socialize with others and settle into their day before getting ready for morning activities or outings.
As a licensed facility, we also must ensure that child/staff ratios are met at all times.
If anyone other than a parent or guardian will be picking up your child, please inform the centre and ensure the person is on the pick-up list. We will not release your child to anyone else without proper authorization (verbal or written to director). Educators and the director should know the custodial arrangements as it pertains to your family. Photo I.D. may be required when parents send an unauthorized person to pick up their child. (i.e. in an emergency or unknown to staff).
In the event of bad weather and we need to close the school, we will send an email and/or post the closure on Facebook as well as announce it on local radio.
Should it be necessary to close the school for any other reason, we will do our best to inform parents/guardians as quickly as possible. This may include any/or all the following; activating a phone chain, having the executive call, sending an email or a message on Facebook.
When in doubt, it is always a good idea to call the school before leaving home.
The Windsor Nursery School will be closed for the following holidays and families do not pay for these days:
New Years Day – Heritage Day – Good Friday – Victoria Day – Canada Day – Labour Day
Truth and Reconciliation Day – Thanksgiving Day – Remembrance Day – Christmas Day – Boxing Day
We operate normal hours during school in-service days.
Late Pick Ups have Penalties
The Centre closes sharply at 5:30 p.m. daily; all children are to be picked up on or before this time.
Unless extenuating circumstances prevail, a late charge will be applied. A $10.00 charge per 5-minute intervals will be applied. (E.g., At 5:31 pm $10.00 is due, at 5:36 pm another $10.00 fee is applied) Parents can expect to be advised of this by the staff present on the day in question; as well, the charge will be applied to your current monthly fee invoice (date, time and late charge amount will be documented.) Fees are due upon written notice and payable to the office to be distributed to the staff who remained late with your child (ren).
Discussion regarding late charges should be made with the Director or Assistant Director.
• After one hour and no response from the parent or the emergency contact person, the WNS will contact Child Protection Services and follow their instruction.
If there are any special custody arrangements with families, parents/guardians are asked to explain custodial arrangements and keep the staff updated on any changes. When special circumstances apply such as denial of access to one parent, written documentation of custody and access schedules issued by the court is required. When parents are in the process of determining custody in courts, we can not deny access to either parent, until we receive court documentation indicating the permanent arrangements.
