After School and PD Days

Important Notice: Fees for After School, commencing January 2018
The province of Ontario has recently announced some changes regarding employment policies that will impact fees for CAG programs and services.
The greatest impact is that this January 1, 2018, the minimum wage will increase to $14 an hour, a 22% increase. In order to meet this requirement and continue to offer fair and competitive pay to our employees, all salaries in our daycare programs will be raised.
This cost increase, together with others required to meet provincial regulations, are significant given the CAG’s small size and budget. As a result, fees for after school child care will be $210 per child per month, beginning January 1, 2018.
While CAG aims to offer lower rates for community members, this fee increase cannot be avoided given the changes in policy and regulations. Should this fee increase prohibit you from being able to benefit from CAG services, please email me at cworkun@ottawaeastCAG.ca.

Please note that due to changes made by the Government of Ontario to the Child Care Act that came into effect in the 2017-18 school year, CAG can no longer accept registration from children under the age of 6. This means most Kindergarten children, we can however accept registrations for children in their senior Kindergarten year once they have reached their sixth birthday.

Registration Your child's spot is secured with a non-refundable deposit of one month's fees. The deposit will form your June 2018 payment if still in the program at that time.

Behaviour Management at After School
CAG is committed to providing a safe, nurturing and inclusive After School program that strengthens and builds each child’s self-esteem and provides a creative program that will capture your child’s attention and keep them positively engaged.
After School rules for the program are determined each September in partnership with the children. The overriding principles are safety, cooperation and respect.
Our first line approach to behaviour management is prevention. Staff are trained to keep an eye out for any developing issues and to distract and redirect before a situation develops. With the same end goal of prevention, we endeavour to present activities each day that keep the children productively engaged.
If a situation escalates, we do give consequences appropriate to the severity of the behaviour. Our goal is always to manage behaviours in a positive, constructive manner.
For more detail please see our Behaviour Management Policy and Policy with Regard Suspensions and Terminations.

First day of program Please note, if you are registered with the French Board, the first day of our program is September 5.

After School Program Refunds

o Withdrawal from the program at any time (before the start of the program or after the start) will result in loss of deposit
o Withdrawal from the program after the start of the program also requires one calendar month’s notice. If less than one calendar month’s notice is provided, parents/guardians will be required to pay one month’s fees in lieu of notice.
