Frequently Asked Questions
Yes. The childcare centre is not the place for a sick child. Many illnesses are contagious. Just as you would want to protect your child from other sick children, you must do the same for them. Having a sick child attend Daycare along with it’s stimulating environment is not in the best interest of your child’s well being.
Your child’s birthday is a special event. Parents are welcome to bring in a treat (cupcakes, cookies, cake, etc) for your child to share with his/her friends.
PLEASE PROVIDE A RECEIPT indicating the source of the food item. Other party favors are not necessary. Please do not bring in snacks containing nuts as this can cause severe allergic reactions in some children.
Food served to the children at the centre must be from an “approved source”. An approved source is a food premise that is inspected by the appropriate federal, provincial or municipal inspection agency. It is important to note that food that is made in the home of a parent, volunteer or staff member is not an approved source, and is not to be served to the children.
One of the benefits of licensed childcare is the constant supervision. We have taken great care over the choice of our staff, all staff is required to provide a recent criminal reference check provided by the police department. It would be highly unlikely for a person to act improperly. You can be confident in the safety of your child.
Receipts are provided to everyone and are generally issued at the end of the calendar year. We will provide receipts upon your child’s withdrawal or upon your request.
Tuition varies by individual classroom and by level of attendance. To find out more information about tuition please contact the centre directly.
Kinderland Education and Childcare Centre requires all teaching staff and volunteers to provide a criminal reference check. We typically ask for and check references to further ensure we hire the right applicants.

Yes, we are happy to provide field trips for the children. Our most popular is an excursion to a hobby farm located north of our centre. They are able to see the set up and materials of a small farm while safely interacting with farm animals. Other trips include visits to the library and water park. Written permission from parents/guardians is required for the children to attend field trips.
