Registration and Deposit
All completed registration forms must be signed and submitted to the Daycare office prior to a child attending the Daycare. A deposit equal to one month’s fees must be included to complete registration in the Daycare. Upon receipt of registration forms, parents will be contacted by the Daycare to schedule an orientation meeting for new families.
Cancellation of Care
Parents are required to give one month’s written notice prior to withdrawing their child from Allenby Daycare. Failure to give one full month’s notice will result in the loss of the initial deposit.
Allenby Daycare closes promptly at 6:00 p.m. It is the parent’s or guardian’s responsibility to arrive on time to pick-up your child/children. Parent’s or guardians arriving after 6:00 p.m. will be requested to sign a late slip and are charged a late fee of $1.00 per minute for the first 5 minutes, and $5.00 per minute every minute after 6:05 p.m. retroactive to 6:00 p.m. (I.e. 6:06 p.m. = $30.00, 6:07 p.m. = $35.00, 6:08 p.m. = $40.00) .

Full Day Kindergarten Before & After Care
The Full Day Kindergarten Before & After Care enrollment will be done by lottery on an annual basis. Priority will only be given to children enrolled in the program for a consecutive year(JK going into SK). The lottery generally takes place in the Spring after Allenby Public School’s Kindergarten registration. If you would like to add your child’s name to the lottery list for a before & after school childcare spot, please contact the Daycare office for more information.
A registration form must be received in order to be put on the waiting list. Priority is established by the date of application. Separate lists are maintained for each age group so that vacancies may be filled in accordance with our licensing restrictions. When spaces become available, licensing restrictions and other operational issues determine how the vacancy will be filled. Siblings of children already in the program have priority only for the regular Daycare programs (Toddler, Preschool & Grade 1-6; this does not apply to children enrolled in the Full Day Kindergarten Before & After Care). The Full Day Kindergarten Before & After Care enrollment will be done by lottery on an annual basis. Priority will only be given to children enrolled in the program for a consecutive year(JK going into SK). A child attending the Before & After Care Program is not automatically eligible for admission/attendance in the Grade 1- 6 Allenby Daycare Program. The Grade 1- 6 Daycare Program has a separate registration policy, process and wait list. The Childcare Director and the Board of Directors will consider exceptional circumstances. Once a Daycare spot has been offered to a family and that spot has been declined, the family may remain on the waiting list. However, the date of application will be changed to the date of refusal. This may impact the family’s future eligibility to enroll at the Daycare. The waiting list application can be downloaded from our website.
