The Board of Directors determines the monthly fees as part of the annual budget approval process. Please note monthly fees are set at a single fixed rate, averaged out between September to June (even though some months such as September, December, March and June may have fewer operating days).

John Ross Robertson Child Centre is operated on a 10-month basis and is closed all of July and August.

We are also closed to all children on Statutory Holidays including Family Day and Easter Monday.

Families are strongly encouraged to submit fees through pre-authorized debit, the forms for which must be completed and submitted at time of registration. (The Director/Supervisor must approve any other payment options.)  Beginning in September, fees will be debited on the first of each month (or shortly thereafter).

There is a $25.00 charge for any outstanding/rejected payment through pre-authorized debit.

Deposits & Registration
Parents who elect to enrol or re-enrol their child(ren) in the Child Care must submit an enrolment application as well as a signed pre-authorized debit forms

The deposit, equal to one month’s fees, must be made to complete registration. This deposit will be applied to the following June of the academic year for which the child has been enrolled.

Parents of children already enrolled in the child care looking to re-enroll their child(ren) to secure place(s) for the upcoming September must notify the Director and provide a new deposit no later than March 1st (subject to availability in any placement offer).

Parents who enroll their child(ren) during the year and after March1st still must provide a deposit of one month’s fees in lieu of “last month/June” fees (to be discussed with the director).

Monthly fees will generally be debited from parents’ accounts on/or shortly after the first of each month, beginning with September 1st.   The deposits, however, will be held and applied as fees for the month of June - the last month of service.

The “last month” is always considered to be June as the centre is closed in July and August.

Once a new academic year has begun, the June fee may not be applied to any other month should notice of withdrawal be given prior to the school year’s end and is therefore in this instance, not refundable.

Clients receiving subsidy from the City of Toronto are exempt from making fee deposits.

Reimbursement of Deposit Fees / Notice of Withdrawal Fees are based on enrollment not on attendance. Therefore, no reimbursement of fees will be given for absences including illness, vacations or seasonal closures. We have formulated monthly fees with holiday and other closures taken into consideration. Therefore monthly fees do not vary during shorter working months such as September, December or June.

Note: All fees are subject to change at the discretion of the Board of Directors in keeping with the Centre's ongoing needs.
