Before / After School Age Care Pre-Registration (2020-2021)

As you are aware, our programs are contingent upon school buildings being open. There may also be restrictions on our final capacity and hours of operations due to any COVID-19 precautions in place in September have limited the number of families we can admit.  We do not admit on a first come basis, we use an established priority placement protocol amended by any necessary guidelines provided by Hamilton Public Health and other authorities.×

2020 – 2021 Before & After School Pre-Registration

Please note that as of Friday August 28, we have done an initial distribution and offer of placement for the severely limited number of spaces available for our program in September.

New registrants will remain on our Wait List until a vacancy can be offered. We review this list as space becomes available, but as there are so many criteria at play right now due to COVID-19 and a lack of available staffing due to it, we are unable to let families know “where” you may reside on that list as that changes constantly for different reasons.

We are hoping to be able to take on some more highly qualified educators and staffing beginning in October to be able to offer some more space to families still looking for care, but that is far from certain at this time. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

2020 – 2021 Program Rates*

*Our rates remain unchanged from the 2019 – 2020 school year, however these rates may be changed, with prior notification to our families, to account for different operating hours and any other currently unforseen changes necessary due to COVID-19.

Making Payments

All payments for our School Age program are made by Pre-Authorized Debit, taken on the first day of each month (new) in which care is given. Some families are also subsidized under contract with the City of Hamilton.

Families new to WDCC / Camp Waterdown Before & After School Care only: A deposit of 50% of the first month’s fee is required upon receiving a confirmed registration space.  This amount will be credited to your first month fee, and can be made by INTERAC eMail Money transfer.

A electronically provided PAD Authorization form is required (a link will also be provided in your final acceptance registration confirmation email) and should be submitted within 2 business days of a confirmed registration (unless we already have one on file for you). In some cases you may be asked to provide payment for the first month by another means as this needs to be received at least 2 weeks prior to the first day of the month being debitted.

No refunds for cancellations will be given for Before / After School Program Fees within 30 days of the Program Month start.

Due to the high demand, limited enrolment and need to secure program resources; we require our families’ full commitment upon offer of placement. Credits or refunds are not given for illness, absences or program / facility closures due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances except where noted due to COVID-19.

Wait List Policy

Space in our programs is limited (and we adhere to Ministry guidelines for safe and effective Adult/Child ratios). We reserve the right to refund and cancel enrolments as needed if an accidental overbooking or program cancellation or capacity downsizing occurs. Enrolment preference is governed by our established priority placement protocol.

Wait List

If the programs are full, parents will be offered a spot on our Waiting List in case we receive able to open another group, or openings occur due to cancellations. Wait List priority is not guaranteed as we do not take deposits, and we normally offer available space first to families previously enrolled in one of our programs among other priority placement protocol criteria.
