FAQs - KidsZone Childcare FAQ's

The decision to register your children for childcare is an important one. We have put together a list of the main questions that parents ask when they are researching the best centre for their family needs. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to speak with the Director or Supervisor of the Centre.

Most people will call or email us to book a date and time for the tour, although we will provide a tour for a drop in client, it is easier and more time can often be spent when an appointment is booked.

To register just the form completed and the fees for registration and deposit is required, at time of starting the immunization record is required.

We do administer any medication.....the parents are responsible for completing the required form before anything can be given. This form can be filled out at home as it is found online in our parent section. Just to note that over the counter medication such as Tylenol cannot be kept at the Centre for more than 3 days.

We do accommodate any allergy in the centre. We are a nut free centre and do not allow outside food into the centre. Our Catering company will provide any substitute for the menu item if there is an allergy issue.

Yes the child is required to go outside as required by the Ministry of Education.  If there are extenuating circumstances please speak with the management staff as soon as possible.

We have 6 playgrounds on site. Two are full rubber for the infants and toddlers. The other 4 are half rubber ground and half asphalt. At times in nice weather the older children may also walk to the park.

Only preschoolers and older will go on bused field trips. The toddlers will stay at the centre and have special visitors come such as the Easter Bunny, or a magician.

There are many special events throughout the year. Some for just the children in the classrooms such as Christmas, Easter, Halloween. However, we do strive to involve the entire family unit in their care by including many full centre events such as multi-cultural day, and the great Fall Family BBQ! As well to teach the children the importance of being involved in their community and helping others, we choose events such as food drives, or the shoe box programs for the women’s and children’s programs. All of these initiatives have been greatly successful thanks to our staff and families that participate.

The children will learn through modelling with the teachers and other children, as well as learning through play. See other questions regarding play based learning.

The rooms are organized in ‘centres’, which means they are different areas of activity in the classroom. For example, there will be crafts, floor play, dramatic play, computers (not all ages), and table toys.

Infants each have their own cribs that they will sleep in at any time, and crib sheets are provided and washed at least weekly. The toddlers and Preschoolers will sleep on cots, for which we provide the cot sheets and wash these every week. The blankets for all age groups are provided by the family and will be sent home at the end of the week to be washed.

We begin with the basics of phonics and math knowing the goal is to move them towards a Kindergarten program and the expectations of the School Board.

Yes we have a full day Junior and Senior Kindergarten program.  Our program goal is to move beyond the learning areas set out in the Board of Education requirements for this age group but at the same time working to the level of each individual child. The children will have a curriculum based program including, science, math, French, music and phonics, as well as a reading and writing program to hone those skills. We provide 3 report cards as in the school system, and there are no breaks in the care through the year or day.

We require a 4 week notice in order to withdraw your child, in writing either in a letter or email.

There is no vacation time from the billing for the childcare spot that you are using.
