WELCOME to the Saplings Room. Our program is classified as a licensed childcare centre for children from birth to three (0-3 years of age).
Our capacity is presently eight (8) licensed full time (5 days/week) spaces. We fill those eight spaces with 2 full time children, and as many part time children that it takes to fill the other six spaces. The minimum staff to child ratio is 1-4 for the infant toddler age group. We often staff higher than this to safeguard the quality of the program, and to reduce wear and tear on our staff.
We enrol children into our programs in the order in which we receive their family’s applications. However, we do reserve the right to manage the acceptance of applications so as to create group dynamics that allow the children (and staff) to have the best possible experiences.
In Saplings, our new Infant Toddler Program, we enrol children between the ages of 12 months and 30 months.
Infant toddler registration is ongoing; families may register their children at any time during the year, and children are accepted into the program as space becomes available. The waitlist is open to families as soon as you know you will be having a child. There is no fee to register for the waitlist.
Once you have a confirmed space in the program, you will be emailed a secure link to online registration data base in order to complete our Enrolment Package. The enrolment package includes:
- BCC’s Enrolment Form
- Parent’s Agreement
- Consents and Permissions
- Emergency Card
- Immunization Form
Please do not forget to upload a photo of your child as this is one of our licensing requirements.
Once enrolment has been completed, you will receive an invoice for your registration fee as well as deposit. Program fees are invoiced monthly and will come to you by email.
Should you have any questions regarding enrolment, please contact an Infant toddler Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 604-947-9632.
