Vacation Policy & Closures

If a holiday should fall on a weekend, we will close the following Monday in lieu of the holiday. We do not refund any child care fees due to closures that are listed under our “Hours of Operation”. Our annual fee takes these closures into account and is simply divided into 12 equal payments. No fees are refunded due to our scheduled statutory holiday and winter break closures.


Monthly tuition payments pay for a child care space, regardless of attendance. As such, Mommy’s Daycare is unable to refund child care tuition due to child/family vacations, illness, or other non-attendance. No fees are refunded due to non-attendance.

In the event that Mommy's Daycare should close unexpectedly without any prior notice, parents will not be charged for the closure. Unexpected closures may occur because of circumstances such as:


1. Severe snow

2. Extended power outages that would lead to an unsafe facility

3. Educator/Caregiver illness that would not allow us to meet BC child care licensing regulation ratios

4. Any closure directed by the child care licensing officer, licensing or health authority, or the provincial health officer.
