Day Care Waitlists

In order to place a child's name on the waitlist, the family will complete the waitlist form in conjunction with a visit to the centre. There are three separate waitlists for our programs, one for Langara College student and staff children, one for community children, and one for children with extra support needs.

Changes in Family Information

Families are expected to inform staff of any changes so that registration forms can be kept up to date at all times. We must be able to reach families at all times. So we must be told immediately of any changes in address, phone number, class schedule or place of work and if there is any change in the people who are authorized to pick up a child.

"Extra Support" Waitlist

Families who wish to place their children on our "extra support" waitlist will need to be enrolled in the Supported Child Development Program. Daycare staff can assist families in connecting with Supported Child Development Program staff if they wish it.

Waitlist Form

Priority in Enrolment

First priority in enrolment will be given to:
  • Langara College student and staff children
  • Children with extra support needs
  • Children currently enrolled in the toddler program and moving to a three-to-five program
  • Siblings of children currently enrolled in the program.

When a space becomes available, day care staff will contact the next family on the waitlist in order of priority.

If a space becomes available and is not needed by any family on the Langara College waitlist, it may be offered to a family on the community waitlist.

Children's Files and Confidentiality

Upon enrolment families will read and sign the Parent Contract and fill in the forms in the registration package. These documents will go into the child's file. All information about children and families in this file is considered confidential and will be stored in a secure place. 

Withdrawal

Families are required to provide at least one month's notice when they withdraw their child. More notice is preferable if the family can give it. This is crucial as most families on the waitlist require one month's notice from the day care before they can accept a space. In lieu of notice we require one month's payment.
