Orientation to Program

All paper work will be given out at time of tour and must be completed in full prior the child’s/ren’s first day of care.

Wait List Policy
Alexandra Daycare has established the following priority ranking for offering available space to new applicants on our waitlist.

  • Children of staff members
  • Children in care who need to increase their days of care
  • Siblings of children already enrolled
  • Children in care who need to move into the next age group
  • All other applicants on the waiting list

At time of offering an open space we ( ADC ) will give applicants a 3 day period to return a phone call or respond back to an email, before we will move on to the next person on our wait list.

ADC will ensure that the wait list will be made available in a manner that maintains the privacy and confidentiality of the children listed on it, but that allows the position of a child on the list to be ascertained by the affected persons or families. O.Reg.274/16,s.4(2)
