The province has released a statement and as of Friday March 20, 2020, we are closed to all families unless you are an essential service.
This closure will last for three weeks. The province gave centers the option to close completely and lay off staff or provide care for the children of essential service workers only. We will only be allowed to have a maximum of 16 spaces at each centre and available to those essential service workers only.
The province has indicated that all parents who are not receiving care will not be expected to pay for their childcare space, however the province is also not paying your fees. Parent revenues make up half of our operating income and we therefore are asking that you consider paying your fees for this three week period or a portion thereof.
Parents receiving care in the essential services sector will be paying full fees.
We will keep you updated with any new information as things continue.
