Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, K.I.D.S. maintains a waiting list for child care spaces. The wait list generally operates based on the date of application or date of priority. Families with children already enrolled in a program at K.I.D.S. will be given priority.

Yes, once you have conceived you can put your unborn child on the waitlist. Once your child is born, please contact the Executive Director so we can update your application.

Yes, we are a fully licensed facility by Fraser Health. For more information go to Fraser Health Childcare Licensing Information

Yes, our staff members are educated, quality child care professionals who have the required qualifications to work with the children in their care. All our educators also hold valid first-aid certificates and have submitted to full Criminal Record Checks.

We are an allergy-aware facility. Families are welcome to bring any type of food that they wish. Children and adults with allergies are required to provide all food and medications and follow all safety protocols. More information about allergy safe childcare can be found here.

Our child care environment is active. Rest time is a healthy and important part of a young child’s development and the ability of a child to be successful throughout the day often depends on sufficient rest time.

To attend K.I.D.S., your child must be well enough to participate in all aspects of the program. While we are sensitive to the difficulties illness may cause families, we are not licensed to care for children who are unwell. If your child is sick, you are required to keep him/her at home or make alternate care arrangements. All families are required to follow K.I.D.S. sick child policy.

Pick up and drop off times are coordinated with staffing schedules and ensure that ratios are met in each program. If you are unable to pick up at the contracted time, please make alternate arrangements with a friend or relative and contact K.I.D.S. with the name and number of the pick-up person. Frequent lateness may indicate that K.I.D.S. does not meet your family’s needs and you may need to make alternate child care arrangements.
