* When Christmas Eve falls on a normal working day, regularly scheduled hours will cease at noon on that day. However, should Christmas Eve fall on a Monday, the Centre will be closed the whole day. Furthermore, when New Year's day falls on a Thursday, the Daycare will be closed on Friday, January 2nd.

Inclement Weather

The Day Care also closes from time to time due to inclement weather. This event will correspond with the closing of Queen's, which is at the discretion of the Principal. The Executive Director will not officially close the Day Care Centre without the appropriate consultation with the staff and available Board members. If such a decision is made to close the Day Care Centre, all parents will be contacted by phone immediately. Parents would then be expected to have their children picked up within 1/2 hour of closure
