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.

Executive Director Orde Day Care Centre
