Registration Fee

Once you have completed the registration form you will be required to provide a $150 ($50 of this fee covers the costs of sleeping cots) registration fee to reserve your child a spot within the daycare. Please note, this fee is not refundable.

Monthly Fees (Cost of Care)

Daycare fees are calculated on an annual basis and are subject for review every quarter. Invoices are issued on the 26th of each month for the following months care. Childcare fees are due within 14 days of the issue date. If fee's are not provided within the due date of the invoice sent, a 50$ late fee will be incurred every week that it is overdue and at the discretion of management.

There are various payment options available to parents and will be decided prior to their children’s first day at Rockabye Daycare. Payments can be made either by cash, cheque, or on the invoice through either a bank payment or credit card. We can also provide bank details to do a pre-authorized debit payment. Parents are required to ensure their bank accounts are in good standing to process payments. Any bank fees/NSF fees incurred to the daycare due to parents banking status will be charged back to the parent.

Half Day Daycare

At Rockabye Daycare we also provide parents daycare services for afternoon & morning care. This is ideal for parents who have children attending kindergarten.

Morning Care - 7:00am to 11:15am - Children will either be escorted to the school in the area by a staff member or will be picked up by the parent.

Afternoon Care - 11:30am to 5:30 pm - Children will either be escorted the school in the area by a staff member or will be picked up by the parent.

Absences & Late Fee

If parents arrive later than their contracted time to drop off or pick up their child(ren) a late fee of $5/ 15 minutes, and after 15 minutes $1 per minute will be charged. The additional charges will be added to the following month’s fee/statement.

Parents are to call the Provider to inform them that their child will not be attending care, whether due to illness or holidays. Fees are still applicable for absences since your child’s spot is being saved for her/him.

Care on Statutory Holidays

Rockabye Child Care is closed on statutory holidays. Parents are required to pay the usual rate for statutory holidays if your child normally attends on that day.

If care is required on a public holiday, and if the Child Care Provider agrees, an arrangement must be made with the Provider two (2) weeks in advance. There is a higher fee for care on statutory holidays.
