large refillable water bottle (500ml),
hat, shorts, running shoes,
sunscreen already applied,
on rainy days bring a rain coat and boots (we are outside rain or shine),
Additional items required - as indicated on trip prep form
bathing suit, water shoes, towel
Alternative Summer Plans
You have reviewed our summer calendars with the planned trips and activities. These activities and trips may have to be changed without notice. While we will make every effort to adhere to the calendar and times, we need to be sensitive to air quality, weather conditions or other factors, such as staff/child ratios, that may affect the safety of the children. Besides the obvious rain and thunderstorms, we also consider extreme smog alerts and heat advisories. In addition, we must also respond to any emergencies that arise. There are alternative trips available and we will switch to these when necessary.
Hours of Operation and Arrival Times
The Daycare hours are 7:30 AM to 6:00 PM. Daily sign in is between 7:30am-9:00am. Sign out is between 4:00pm-6:00pm. Some trips return later than 4:00pm, these specific trip return times are noted on the calendars & trip prep form. The school doors will be locked between 9:00am & 4:00pm. Families will face delays entering the building outside of these hours.
Drop off by 9:00am is required, especially on trip days. If your child arrives after 9:00am they often have difficulty adjusting and may miss out on the scheduled activities and safety talk. In addition, latecomers disrupt the children and the program already in progress. Parents must drop children off to their program room, pre screened, each day with all items needed and must always check in with staff before leaving the room. This is required for attendance verification and safety reasons. Please do not send your child into the school unattended.
If your child is late or absent, please call the room to let staff know when we can expect to see them.
The daycare number is 416-466-8715:
Room 105 – Grade 1 &2 ext 223
Room 101 – Grades 3-6 ext 224
Before we leave the centre we ensure that all children are dressed appropriately and are thoroughly prepared for the trip. We take safety very seriously. If your child is late and misses the trip preparation and safety discussion, they will NOT be allowed to go on the trip, even if they arrive before the group departs. On trip days, if you arrive after 9:00AM you must make alternative arrangements for your child as no care will be provided for children who arrive late.If your child is unable to fully participate in the camp program for any reason, i.e. due to an illness or injury, then you must make other arrangements for care until they are able to return and participate in the scheduled program. Children must be dropped off and picked up at Jackman. Trip location drop off and pick-ups are not permitted.
Appropriate Gear for Summer Camp
The children are very active in the summer and their clothing and footwear need to allow for safe and comfortable play. Running shoes are required every day. While sandals may be worn, they must have straps that secure the sandal to the foot. For safety reasons flip-flops & Crocs are only allowed during water play.
T-shirts, shorts and a hat are required every day. Hats can be left in their cubby for daily use. Depending on the day’s activities, children will also need to bring/wear a swimsuit (2 piece suits are better for girls), towel, water bottle, water shoes and a knapsack.
Sunscreen is required every day and must be applied in the morning before dropping off your child. An extra bottle of sunscreen must be labelled and kept at the daycare for application later in the day. Please do not bring aerosol sunscreen, it is not permitted in the school. On days when your child is going on a trip where they may be exposed to mosquitoes, you may send mosquito repellent. Please label everything.
Children must bring a lunch every day except when noted. No nuts or pop please.

We have found this policy necessary due to financial losses incurred when programs are cancelled on short notice. We invest in equipment, staffing and utilize many resources prior to the start date of your session and in most cases these costs are irrecoverable. Despite program waitlists, filling vacancies on short notice is difficult, resource intensive and most often results in significant lost opportunity costs.
