In order to have your child attend the Discovery Program you must fill out a registration on-line and pay a yearly $25.00 registration fee per child that is payable at the time of registration. A calendar is provided monthly to accommodate you with your monthly schedule needs. Calendars must be submitted by the 15th of the previous month in order for us to accommodate your childcare scheduling needs. If a calendar is not received, then your original schedule indicated on your registration form would be the schedule reflected on your invoice. All days that a child is registered for must be paid for, even if the child does not attend. If your needs change then it is your obligation to inform the Supervisor at your site and he/she will make the necessary change on your registration form. To validate the parental notice, the Supervisor will document the date and time of the change. If written notification of vacation time, or days needed off, is given two weeks in advance, payment of fees is not required. Withdrawal from the program also requires the two-week notice.
It is the responsibility of the parent or guardian to inform Discovery of any schedule changes, such as absence due to illness, early pickups, or school event. It is also important to notify Discovery staff of any persons picking up your child from the program, who is not on the child's Registration form. Please also inform your child's school teacher in regards to his/ her Discovery schedule.
In the event that a child is picked up after the closing time of 5:30 p.m. Discovery staff will be compensated by the parent/guardian at the rate of $1.00 per minute, which is to be paid upon pick up that same night. A Late Pick-Up Form will also need to be filled out and signed by staff and parent/ guardian that same evening at pick up. Our staff will be responsible for a child only until 6:00 p.m. After that point, if we have not received a call and are unable to reach the parent or an emergency contact, we will contact the appropriate authorities and the Children's Aid Society to report a child in need of care. Every effort will be made to contact the parent.
