Registration Fee
A non-refundable deposit of the first week’s fees (per child) is due once a start date has been established. The deposit will be applied to the first week of your child care. If, for whatever reason, you decide not to continue with enrollment, the deposit will not be refunded.

Payment is due at the beginning of each month, no later than the first Friday. We accept cheques (made payable to Lakeside Child Care Centre), Visa or MasterCard. You may also pay online through your bank as you would pay any other bill (please see the centre supervisor for details). A $20 NSF fee will be applied for insufficient funds.

Late Payment Charge
Fees not paid by the first Friday of each month may be subject to a $25 late fee.

Overtime Fee
For the well-being of the child and the family, a day of care is considered to be no longer than 10 hours. Families who need extended care may be subject to an overtime fee of $10 per every 30 minutes (or part thereof) after 10 hours.

Late Fee
After 6:00 p.m., a $10 charge will apply for every ten minutes (or part thereof).

Isolation Fee
If a child falls ill during the day and needs be separated from the group before a parent/guardian is able to pick up, an isolation fee of $10 per half hour may apply after the first hour.
