Full Time Space
The present fees are $20.80 per day for each preschool child in a full time space or $376.00 per 4 week billing period. A full time space is available to the child(ren) between the hours of 7:15 am to 6:00 pm, Monday to Friday as well as during all school breaks and inservices. If parents/guardians require more than 10 hours of care a day, this must be applied for in writing to the Board of Directors. If the request is approved, an extra fee will be charged for using over 10 hours of care at an extra rate of $10.40 per day. We reserve the right to deny any request based on the needs of the child(ren).
Part Time/Casual Space
The present fees for a part time space is $10.40 per day for each preschool child. These spaces are applied for on a year to year basis. Full time spaces always have priority over part time spaces.
Part time/casual spaces are not available on school inservices and/or breaks and thus are not charged fees on any days the Centre is unable to provide care.
Part time/casual spaces are available between the hours of 9:00 am to 3:30 pm only. This is due to high ratios before and after these times. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU ADHERE TO THE ABOVE. FAILURE TO DO SO COULD RESULT IN THE WITHDRAWAL OF YOUR CHILD.
SCHOOL AGE FEES
The slots are:
The present fees are $10.30 per day for full time School Age care. The present fees are $6.15 per day for one slot of School Age care.
Riverview Ashland Child Care Centre Inc. offers two types of programs:
1. FULL TIME SCHOOL AGE CARE PROGRAM
Child care is provided year round and applies to children who may attend before school, lunch and afterschool.
INSERVICE DAYS AND SCHOOL CLOSURES - INCLUDING SUMMER
Inservice days and school closures, including summer, will be billed at a rate of $20.80 per day, which is the full cost of care, whether your child is in attendance or not.
2. AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
The after school program provideds care for children who attend in an after school slot only. It runs between 3:30-6:00 pm daily from September (or when school commences) to the end of June (or the last day of school) each year. Registration must be applied for and confirmed annually. Spaces are limited in this program and the Centre applies for use of Riverview Community Club gym space annually.
INSERVICE DAYS AND SCHOOL CLOSURES - EXCLUDING SUMMER
Inservice days and school closures - excluding summer - will be billed at a the full cost of care of $20.80 per day whether your child is in attendance or not.
Please note: Movement from either program is limited according to vacancy and the Centre has the right to deny transferring between these two school age programs at any time.
SUMMER REGISTRATION - THE AFTER SCHOOL CHILD
Although this program operates from September to June (see above), we will do our best to accommodate your summer child care needs when you identify them on the summer registration planner issued every April. On those weeks where summer space for your child is confirmed, the rate will be $104.00 per week ($20.80 per day).
An example of accommodating your summer child care needs, is based on if a twelve year old child is leaving the school age room in June and we know there is a space available. We would then slot your child care needs into this space. WE DO NOT HOWEVER, let you use a space that a full time school age parent is already paying full fees for whether in attendance or not.
If no care is needed for your child throughout the summer, a deposit for each week unused will be required to hold the after school space until September or first day of school. This deposit is at a rate of $30.75 per week or $6.15 per day (your regularly slotted amount during the school year).
All the above fees are based on the contractual times of use and according to the Manitoba Child Day Care Office fee structure.
Occasionally, parents/guardians are asked to contribute towards field trips.
A monthly transportation fee will be charged for each child registered in both the preschool room and school age room programs. This fee is applied to the maintenance of the Centre's van and will be itemized on your monthly invoice of $5.00 per child per billing period.
YOU WILL BE NOTIFIED IN ADVANCE OF ANY OTHER ADDITIONAL FEES WHICH MAY ARISE.
We are a charitable organization and therefore are able to issue income tax receipts for any donations. Some families choose to make a donation rather than participate in fundraising activities. Every year we have a fundraising goal which is calculated according to the number of families enrolled in the Centre. The predicted amount to be generated per family will be calculated annually and posted on the Parent Bulletin Board.
A provincial government fee subsidy, based on net family income is available to families who qualify. Subsidized families are responsible for an additional $2.00 per day per child. This cost is in addition to any amount given as their "family portion" on the subsidy approval sheet. Applications can be picked up at the Manitoba Child Day Care Office, 2nd floor, 114 Garry Street or can be completed online at www.direct.gov.mb.ca and follow the links to the subsidy online service. They can also be contacted at 945-2197.
