Use of Program

Parents are to notify Program employees as far in advance as possible when their children will not be attending by filling out the monthly calendar. The Activity Leaders’ will carry a cell phone at all times and that phone number will be given to parents to call to notify if there will be any changes in attendance. The program cell phone is 306-231-9452. Full and Part-Time users must notify staff when their children will NOT be attending at least 1 day in advance (see contact information on flipside of this sheet)

Drop Off and Pick Up

Parents or designate MUST accompany their child/children into the Program base room.

St. Augustine –Art Room

If the children are not in the designated base area, a location where they can be found will be posted on the room door.  Unless otherwise arranged in writing, students will only be allowed to leave the Program with their parents or designate.

Meals and things to bring

All children need to bring a healthy lunch and 1-2 snacks a day.

Please ensure your child has a LABELLED lunch kit, backpack, hat and a water bottle every day. 

Late Pick Up of Children

All children using the Program must be picked up by their parent/designate no later than 6:00pm.  Failure to do so will result in a $25 fee per child for the first 15 minutes past 6:00pm per child.  Parents will be charged $50 per child from 6:15-6:30pm.  After 6:30pm if the child is not been picked up, the issue becomes a child welfare concern and will be referred to the appropriate government agency.  In addition to the fee, if a parent/designate is later than 10 minutes, the emergency contact will be called and requested to pick up the child.

If a parent/ guardian is late 3 times in a calendar year this will result in termination of care from HPSCCC and all its locations.

Activities

Activities may include sports, art, games, movies, outings, and adventurous play depending on the mix of students using the Program and the time of day.  The Program will be interesting and stimulating.  For the children that need and prefer quiet time, this option will also be made available.  Activities in the summer program will sometimes be held in the gymnasium or outside, weather permitting. Please refer to the calendar for daily activities.

Payments

Bills will be issued to parents in the first day of the month following services by email.  Payment is to be made by the 15th.  Please address all cheques to Humboldt Public School Childcare Centre.  Post-dated cheques for full and part-time registrations are welcome.  We accept E-Transfers to payments@hpscccentre.ca

Any billing discrepancies should be brought to the attention of the Humboldt Public School Childcare Centre Director immediately after the bill is received.

Student Behaviour

St. Austine – Students will adhere to the code of behaviour specified by the Greater Saskatoon Catholic School.  The Program supports the Above the Line Program endorsed by St. Augustine and uses these guidelines for determining acceptable behaviour.

If discipline problems arise, the Activity Leaders and BSELC Program Coordinator will work with the parents and child to devise a solution.  Humboldt Public School Childcare Centre will act as final arbitrators.

We are looking forward to having a safe and fun summer with the children!
