Daycare
At Puddle Splashers Childcare Society we offer daycare services for children 2.5-5 years old. Our daycare runs from 7am-6pm Monday to Friday and is closed on all statutory holidays. All our daycare staff our ECE trained and have worked with children for several years. In the daycare children are encouraged to interact with one another through play. We offer two snacks one in the morning and the other in the afternoon. The children are encouraged to rest during nap time. If your child has outgrown naps they will be given quiet activities to do during this time, if staffing permits. We also have daily circle time and arts and crafts that are related to the weekly theme.

HOURS OF OPERATION

The centre will be open form 7:00am-6:00pm. Please understand that it is important that you pick your child up by closing time. If a parent is consistently late picking up his/her child we will impose a late fine. The fine is $1 per minute late. The Daycare is closed for the following days:

Please check the parent bulletin board regularly for notices and information regarding our program. If you wish to discuss your child's progress or have any questions or concerns, please speak to the staff. NUTRITIONAL FACTS: We provide morning and afternoon snack for the children. Snacks provided will be posted in a specific location for you to see what your child has been offered at daycare. If your child has any food restrictions or allergies notify the staff immediately. You will need to provide your child with a lunch that is healthy. We have microwaves to heat up items. If you have items that need to be kept cold please include an ice pack in your child's lunch as fridge space is limited. If you are providing your child with additional snacks please make sure they are healthy.

ARRIVALS AND DEPARTURES

All children registered in our daycare program must arrive at Puddle Splashers no later than 10:00am unless an earlier time is required due to planned activities and/or field trips.

PICKING UP YOUR CHILD

All parents are asked to sign your child out upon your arrival to pick them up. If you are unable to pick up your child and you have an alternate person picking them up please make sure their name is on our registration form and the staff will ask for picture ID to verify their information. In the case of a parent arriving to pick up their child and the staff deems that adult unfit to drive (intoxicated) we will ask you to call an alternative driver to pick up your child for their own safety.

Families will be given a full copy of our parent handbook upon registration or tour of our facility.
