Below are the fee schedules for the 2019-2020 school year. These monthly rates are based on:​

  • Low student to staff ratio 

  • Providing staff with livable wages, which helps to prevent high staff turnover

Fees are payable on or before the first day of each month. Our monthly billing is based on a four week period. For example, a full time space of 5 days per week is billed based on 20 days of care per month. A part time space of 3 days per week is billed based on 12 days per month. 

Billing based on four week periods is beneficial to you as it provides a regular monthly payment that does not fluctuate.  

Infant/ Toddler Program for children under 3 years

We are licensed for 12 children each day. The IT program is open from 8:00am-5:00pm. 

3-5 Year Program

We are licensed for 20 children, aged 3-5 years, each day. Our minimum registration is 2 days. At registration, families must let the daycare manager know if they need to drop off their child between 7:30-8:00am. All children must arrive by 9am, ready for the day. Pick ups are between 3:00-5:30pm, unless previously arranged with the daycare manager or if there is an emergency.  

4-5 Forest School Program 

We are licensed for 15 children each day. We require children to be at least four years old to attend this program. The Forest School program is open from 8:00am-5:00pm. 

Drop-in at the Daycare

Only pre-registered students that have been approved can attend on a drop-in basis. An application form and family meeting are required.
Drop-in availability is on a first come, first served basis. Drop-in spot fees are only payable by cash or email transfer. 

Please note these fees do not include our Kids Healthy Eating Project:

$120/month full time or prorated for part-time attendance














Clients who require the Affordable Child Care Benefit (ACCB, formerly Subsidy) must have authorization in place before care can begin or can pay the full fee amount until their subsidy is approved.

ACCB is the sole responsibility of the parent. The care provider fills out a Child Care Arrangements form and submits to the client who then will need to submit all application requirements and paperwork in a timely manner for the ACCB to be authorized in time for care to begin on the agreed/required start date.

Clients who are expecting to be eligible for or have authorization in place to receive the ACCB will be required to submit half of the first month’s total monthly fee to ensure care will be secured through the application and renewal process.

Please contact us for our full policy.


If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to set up a meeting to discuss.
