Closure of Centre on December 24, 2021

Dear Families of Orde Day Care

Notice of a change to our operations for December 24, 2021.

The Centre will be closed on December 24, 2021, to fulfill our obligations recently agreed to with the full time and part time staff regarding their Collective Agreements, which requires the Centre to provide a paid day off in 2021 in lieu of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. The decision to close the centre on December 24, 2021, was due in part to the historically low enrollment, coupled with the reduced hours of operation on this day.

As a result of the short notice of this closure, the Orde Board of Directors has decided not to charge the affected families for care on this day. Therefore, one day of fees will be deducted from program fees for December 24, 2021.

December 2021 fees will be as follows
Infant fees $1860.34
Toddler fees $1507.36
Preschool fees $1176.31
FDK fees $721.84
School age 3 part (am, lunch, and pm) $733.32
For our subsidized parents who have an assessed daily fee, please deduct one day of fees from your payment for December. Multiply the daily fee x 22 days for December instead of the 23 that is posted on our fee schedule.

The part time school age program i.e., am and/or pm school age program are not affected by this closure and therefore fees will remain the same for these programs.

If you have already submitted your fees for December, a credit of one day will remain on your account for January 2022.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

Staff Vaccination for COVID-19

August 10th, 2021 by Anna Gionet No comments »

To protect the health and safety of all staff, parents, and children, we are committed to having our staff vaccinated at the earliest available time. Please note there may be some staff who will not be able to receive vaccinations due to medical or religious reasons. We will be obligated under the Ontario Human Rights legislation to accommodate them and they will continue to be valued members of our team.

We therefore ask that you do not question our staff about their vaccine status, this information is confidential, and they are under no obligation to provide you with this information. We are directing the staff not to respond to these questions (even if they are vaccinated) and to direct you to myself or the Site supervisor to address any concerns regarding this issue.

We appreciate your ongoing support and assistance through these difficult times. Please feel free to contact me if you require any additional information.
Stay well
Anna Gionet
Executive Director
