registration

Hello and welcome to our home. Children who are 1-6 years of age are welcomed at Small Wonders Dayhome & Playschool. Registration is based on a first-come/first-served basis. If the spaces are filled when a parent calls, the child’s name will be placed on a waiting list to fill vacancies as they occur. Please send a registration request here.

Registration may be an ongoing process throughout the year. I suggest that prior to registration parents arrange to drop by with their child to meet me, and (if during regular hours), meet the other children. The registration meeting must also be held with a parent or legal guardian in order to discuss any questions about the program, and go over policies.
Rates
 As a mother of 4, I understand that childcare is not cheap. When you choose Small Wonders you are choosing a safe home away from home for your child. Regardless of age, your child will never sit in front of a TV all day (we are a TV-free dayhome),  or sit in a playpen without stimulation.
If you calculate the cost of my dayhome, looking at the activities that we do and the hands-on care that your child receives, you will find that it is more than worth it! However, if money is going to be an issue then Small Wonders may not be the best fit.

The Small Wonders Family
Are we the right fit for your family? Small Wonders works closely with parents to create an environment that fosters open communication. Each family is invited to participate in their child's day, and keep up with his or her activities. Small Wonders welcome diverse families from surrounding quadrants. A bit about what we do here. Get an idea if we are a good fit here.

Hours
My hours are Monday to Friday 7:00 AM - 5:00 PM (please discuss flexibility).
Full-time fees cover a maximum of 10 hours per day...overtime will be charged for extra time.
I do not accept incoming 4+ year olds in diapers. Diaper-free means completely potty trained - not in the process of...

Deposit/Administrative Fee
A $25 non-refundable administrative fee is required to hold your child's spot in dayhome. In addition, a deposit equivalent to half  of your child-care fee is must be paid in the first month of care. This fee will be applied to your child’s last 2 (two) weeks of care.
Please realize that in holding your spot, I am turning away another family, should they inquire about availability. If within the first 2 weeks, you choose to withdraw your contract with Small Wonders after paying the deposit, the fee will refunded to you. The deposit will not be refunded after two weeks (14 days).

Payment
Unless otherwise agreed upon, fees are paid by cash or cheque monthly; and should be paid the Friday before the beginning of the next month. Please note that there will be a $25.00 charge for returned checks, plus any other bank fees applied at that time.  A second returned check will result in fees paid strictly in cash thereafter.
Please contact regarding sibling discount. Thank you!
