Registration and Enrolment Policies

Registration for Before and After school care will only be offered from our WAITLIST. Please click here for further information or to register for the waitlist.

Priority is given to:

• Returning children currently attending the program.

• Siblings of children previously and currently enrolled in the centre.

• Children who attend Bayview Community School, General Gordon Elementary and Southlands Elementary schools.

• Children entering Kindergarten.

• Children who have previously been enrolled at Jericho Kids’ Club.

• Children who currently attend another school but have previously been enrolled at Jericho Kids’ Club.

• Children with extra support needs as reflected in the Client Service Agreement with Supported Child Development. To be eligible for enrolment in the program under the Client Service Agreement or a General Service Contract, a child must have Range 2 or 3 needs and have an open Special Needs file with Supported Child Development. Registration priority is according to the above policies, with current families having first option during early member sign up each year. If families do not return registration packages during the member sign-up period it will be assumed that they do not require care for the following school year.

Registration

Registration for the school year is effective from September through June of each year. Families will be asked to re-register for each year in the spring and to secure their registration with a deposit to their September fees. In order to complete registration, the following signed and completed items are required:

• Emergency Consent Card.

• Registration and Health Form.

• Jericho Kids’ Club Registration Form.

• Parent/Guardian Agreement.

• Permission to Share Information Form.

• Recent photograph of the child.

• Immunization records Form.

• Parent Deposit ($200 per child, refundable by request on termination, if all parent agreement obligations are met).

• Annual Membership Fee ($25 per child). Members are entitled to vote at the JKC Annual General Meeting. Currently registered members are eligible to register for additional programs during early bird registration periods at reduced rates where applicable. This may include winter, spring and summer break programs and additional days not already covered in monthly fees. Members who do not have a current regular registration but have paid the Annual Membership Fee are required to pay general fees for winter, spring and summer breaks and are not eligible to register during early bird periods.

• Pre-Authorized Debit Agreement valid from September through June.

• Families applying for MCFD Child Care Subsidy should notify the office.

Part-Time Registration

A limited number of spaces are available for part-time registration. Registration priority is according to the above policies, with families registered for full-time care having first option during early member sign up each year. If space is available during the school year, additional part-time registration may be accepted with no expectation of availability for the next school year. If a waitlist for full-time space occurs subsequently, families may be given the option of increasing to a full-time enrolment to secure their registration or changing to another location if space is available there.

Drop-In Registration

If space is available, we are able to accept registrations on a drop-in basis. In order to complete a drop-in registration, the following signed and completed items are required:

• Emergency Consent Card.

• Registration and Health Form.

Drop-in fees are due at the time of registration. Cancellation of a drop-in must be received 36 hours prior to the intended date in order to receive a refund.

 

Fees

Fees are established as part of the annual budget process and approved by the Parent Advisory Committee. The fee structure is posted in all locations.

• All fees are due on the 1st or 15th of each month. Monthly fees must be paid by Pre-Authorized Debit withdrawal.

• We are unable to give refunds if your child is absent. Staffing is arranged on the basis of enrolment levels and must be met on a continuing basis.

• For your convenience monthly fees are averaged throughout the 10 months of the school year.

• Additional fees for the additional hours during Spring Break, Winter Break and summer programs are set annually.

• If fees are in arrears beyond 2 months we reserve the right to terminate services.

• Parents will be responsible for any processing charges incurred by Jericho Kids’ Club for any payment rejected by the bank.
