Parent Handbook

25 A returning family will not be given priority. If parents withdraw their child/children from our program, they will be required to re-apply on the Childcare Registry. Please note that this excludes our St. Albert site which is closed for the summer months. Waitlist Administration and Priority: When JHFR has spaces available for new registrations to one of our childcare programs, the Site Lead refers to the Childcare Registry based application dates. The Childcare Registry is organized using the following information: A. Application date B. Preferred Start date C. Program 1) Infant: between birth and 17 months 2) Toddler: between 18 months and 30 months 3) Pre-schooler: from 31 months to 5 years 4) JK/SK: from 44 months to 67 months 5) School Age Before/ After: from 6-12 years D. Priority group 1) Children already enrolled (e.g. part time waiting for full time) • St. Albert Site: Priority goes to the children of the students attending St. Albert Adult Learning Centre. 2) Siblings of children already enrolled 3) Children of staff working at JHFR 4) Internal Transfers (existing Jubilee family from another Site or In-Home location) 5) Children of employees in our school based centres 6) Children that are registered on our Childcare Registry When a space becomes available within JHFR, Site Lead assigns the space to the first child on the waiting list. NOTE: The JHFR Executive Director and Manager of Family Services reserves the right to manage the waitlist in the best interest of JHFR childcare. JHFR welcomes families who are in receipt of subsidy from the City of Greater Sudbury Children Services Department. Should you wish to begin care prior to subsidy approval, Jubilee requests an ongoing 2 week prepayment. Waiting Times It is impossible for us to predict how quickly this process will progress. Therefore, we can NOT give an approximate start date. We can’t make any guarantee due to our waitlist being very lengthy, but we will do our best.
