If for some reason you will be unable to pick up your child by 5:30 pm, please notify the centre. In these circumstances alternative arrangements should be made. Our policy is a fine of $1.00/minute late, commencing at 5:31pm.
The total late fee is due in cash to the staff on duty. It is payable immediately upon pick-up. If you do not pay at the time of pick up, you will be required to sign a late fee form stating to whom the money is owed and how much.
If you or an authorized person do not pick up your child by 5:30 p.m. and you have not contacted us, we:
5:45pm – Telephone you again – If you are not reached, telephone the emergency contact people in the order listed in your child’s file. If no one arrives to pick up the child, we will attempt to contact you or another contact listed in your child’s file.
If, by 6:30pm we have not reached anyone indicated in the file, we are required to notify the Children’s Aid Society of Hamilton.
