Wait List

Wait List Application

St. Lawrence Co-operative Day Care Inc. creates and maintains a waitlist for three locations.

A child is added to the waitlist after contact is made online, over the phone, by email or in person. St. Lawrence Co-operative Day Care Inc. (SLCD) does not charge a fee to add a child’s name to the waitlist.

All waitlist applications are placed in a Waitlist Binder and stored in a lockable cabinet to secure and maintain the confidentiality of all applicants.

Children are accepted into the Day Care on a first come, first served basis based on the date of application. Priority is considered for siblings of children already in our Centres.

When a spot becomes available, parents/guardians are called in order of their placement on the waitlist. If a parent/guardian declines the spot then the next parent on the list is called until a parent accepts the spot. At that point the spot is considered filled.

It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to contact the Centre to confirm their spot every 6 months. This can be done in person, by phone or by email. A child’s name is removed from the list when there has been no contact from the parent/guardian in a 6 month period of time. It is also the responsibility of the parent/guardian to notify SLCD if any changes need to be made to their application (i.e. an address change, change of date of when care is required).

If a spot remains unfilled by following the above waitlist process, then parents/guardians on the City of Toronto waitlist will be called in order based on the age group spot available on a first come, first served basis.

St. Lawrence Co-operative Day Care School Age Program services schools which do not have a before and after school program.
