Non-Base Fees

Non-Base Fees include those which are discretionary for optional programming or fees that only apply in certain circumstances.
At the current time, the following non-base fees may apply:

  • NSF/Bank Services Charge, $30 per returned payment

Fee Schedule Notes:
  • Effective December, 31, 2022, infant, toddler, and preschool child care fees are reduced by a total of 52.75% (of original base fees - frozen in March 2022) under the Canada-Wide Early Learning and Child Care (CWELCC) program.
  • Under CWELCC, base fees will not increase. However, child care operators may choose to opt-out of CWELCC - even at a future date. The board of directors reserves the right to make such a decision. Notice of 45 days will be given informing parents of any changes to these fees or our participation in CWELCC.
  • A customer deposit may be charged and will be applied to your base fees in your last month of care.

Payment Policies:
  • Programs are available to parents on a full or part-time basis (minimum of 2 days per week) with a set recurring schedule.
  • Fees are calculated based on scheduled/registered days.
  • Fees are not charged on statutory holidays or during the Christmas closure.
  • Fees are invoiced monthly at the beginning of the month and paid through pre-authorized debit. Your monthly fees will fluctuate month to month based on your child's scheduled days that month.
  • Monthly fees are divided into 2 equal payments, with 50% debited from your bank account on the 1st and the remainder on the 15th of each month.
  • RisingOaks Early Learning does not issue credits for sick days, vacation days, or any unexpected centre closures.
  • One months' notice (or 20 business days) is required to withdraw from the program or to change your scheduled days, space permitting. If less notice is provided, full fees will be charged for the full 20-day notice period.

Methods of Payment

Pre-authorized Debit (PAD) is the primary method of payment. On a case-by-case basis, post-dated cheques or e-transfer may be approved.
