The staff and Board of Directors of Riverview Ashland Child Care Centre Inc. would like to welcome your family to our program. We hope your child(ren) have a long and happy association with us. We can be contacted at any time to discuss any questions, concerns or suggestions you may have.
We are non profit and licensed by the Province of Manitoba. Our Early Childhood Educators and Child Care Assistants have training and/or experience in the field of child care. As a community based service, the Centre provides child care for children ages three to twelve years. Being non profit, we receive financial assistance from the Province of Manitoba in the form of an operating grant and subsidy fees for qualifying families. The operation of the Centre is the responsibility of the Board of Directors and Executive Director.
Riverview Ashland Child Care Centre Inc. was established by a group of concerned parents in 1982 to address the need in the community for a School Age program. It was then, and is still the only Centre in the area which offers both preschool and school age child care services.
We originally occupied a multi purpose room in Ashland School before securing our now permanent site at 112 Ashland on February 13th, 1987. This building is owned by the City of Winnipeg and occupied and maintained by Riverview Ashland Child Care Centre Inc. under our lease agreement. In addition to the Centre, we are also able to utilize Riverview Community Club facilities and the recreation playground attached. The Centre contributed equipment/funds to the playground and Community Centre.
Before Your Child Begins Our Program
All registration and consent forms must be signed and returned to the Centre before their start date.
Fees must be paid in advance up to the end of the billing period before their start date.
On the registration form, parents/guardians are requested to list the people whom their child may be released to. In addition to this, the terms of arrival and departure and the areas of responsiblity are agreed upon in the Transportation Policy and Agreement Form. Variations from these agreements must be in writing by the parents.
Hours Of The Centre
The Centre operates Monday to Friday from 7:15 am to 6:00 pm.
Families who require more than ten hours of child care, must make a written application to the Board of Directors of the Centre. Under Provincial regualtions, the Centre will charge an additional fee for care ten hours and over.
Fees For Late Pick Up After 6:00 pm
A late fee will be assessed for each child on the premise after 6:00 pm. The rate of calculation will be $10.00 for every fifteen minutes or portion thereof per child. The clock in the Centre will be used for the time calculation. This fee is payable to the Centre and will be due within 48 hours.
The fee is based on the time that you and your child(ren) leave the Centre. Please ensure that you arrive in plenty of time to have your child/ren out of the Centre by 6:00 pm, it is just common courtesy and respectful to our staff as they have only been scheduled until 6:00 pm and have their own personal lives to attend to after work hours just as you do.
Failure by a parent/guardian to have a child picked up from the Centre by 6:00 pm will result in the following actions:
- The parent/guardian will be telephoned at home/work/school.
- The "contact" person(s) will be telephoned and requested to pick up the child(ren).
- In the event that both parents/guardians and/or contacts have failed to make pick up arrangements or have not been contacted by 6:45 pm, the Centre has the right to contact Winnipeg South Child and Family Services. This will be at the discretion of the Director, Assistant Director and/or a Board Memeber.
