A child cannot be admitted to the Centre without the completion of the admissions process and appropriate forms. These include personal information about your child, health records, emergency, and medical information, and any permission forms.

A registration form is only required once a spot is secured and we have confirmed space and start date. Registration forms can be found on our website at http://www.educara.ca

All registration forms should be sent by email to info@educara.ca, post or in person at: 275 Tartan Drive, Ottawa, Ontario. To register or find out if spaces are available please contact the school directly, via email, phone, or in person. if we are full at the time of interest you will be placed below the last person on our waitlist and we will contact you via your preferred contact method as soon as a space becomes available. There is no commitment to take the space from being on the waitlist, and if you no longer require care at the time a space becomes available you may remove yourself from the list. Should a space be available at the time of inquiry you will be directed to our registration forms, which can be found under admission at www.educara.ca. Spaces are on a first-come basis and the promptness of returning the completed registration forms will affect securing the space. Further to this, there is a $75 non-refundable registration fee, which will be taken after we receive the registration forms.

Once enrolled, payment is due in advance, on the first of every month. If payment is not received, your service may be suspended.

An official income tax receipt will be issued to you in January.

Please note that fees are due regardless of attendance. Adjustments are not made to accommodate for sick days, vacation, closure due to inclement weather or other emergency closures.

Fees are also applicable for statutory holidays, PD days and Holiday closure. These include Family Day, Good Friday, Easter Monday, Victoria Day, Canada Day, Civic Holiday, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. All holidays and PD Days are communicated each year in Sept via the school calendar. All new registrations are provided with the calendars upon registration.

Snow days or winter closures will be sent out via email. if there is enough warning of the coming weather there will first be a warning email sent out the day before to check emails in the morning. we ask that during bad weather and storms parents check their emails in the morning in case there was not enough warning to send out an initial email the previous day. The decision for closure will be made and sent out to parents by 6:30 am. Should the snow day be called after the school day has begun parents will be emailed and/or called for early pickup and are to promptly come to the school to pick up their child so staff members are able to make it home safely
