Daycare Info

Welcome to Westpark Daycare!

We want to take this opportunity to welcome all of you back and especially our new parents.

For those of you who are not familiar with our daycare policies and procedures:
PLEASE READ THE PARENT HANDBOOK 2018-2019.
It contains important information regarding operational policies and procedures.

Communication with you is essential in order to maximize quality service for your child/children. We shall be sending newsletters and memos periodically during the course of the school year. I have begun to post the daycare’s newsletters on the Westpark Daycare website. Please refer to the “Daycare Bulletin Board” (situated on the wall beside the girls’ bathroom) for additional information concerning the daycare.

Homework

The Homework Program begins the second full week of school and ends the first week in June. The educators responsible for the homework supervision are available to encourage and to assist, but the homework is primarily the responsibility of each child. We are not responsible for incomplete homework. Parents are encouraged to review the homework with their child/children. If a student is misbehaving or is disruptive during the homework period, he/she will be sent to the daycare office.

It is essential to maintain communication with the teachers and parents throughout the year to help your child if he/she is having difficulty coping with the assigned homework.

PED Days

It is the responsibility of the parents to inform themselves of any updated information regarding upcoming daycare events or ped days. Information is available to all daycare parents and is posted on the Daycare Bulletin Board. Ped day registrations are given when you pick up the children from daycare.

The Ped. Days operate from 8:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M.

Early Morning Daycare is available ONLY for those students registered in the program.

In order to plan and book well in advance, we insist that the deadline dates for Ped.Day registrations are respected. We cannot accept any registration forms after the deadline dates.

Medical Forms

Emergency Medical Treatment Form: This form is necessary to complete for each Ped.Day your child/ren will attend.

If you need more information, please do not hesitate to contact me at 514 685-9680 or e-mail mgogoris@lbpsb.qc.ca, or come and see me.
Have a good year!!
