Provincial Wage Enhancement Grant Petition

The Ontario government could cut funding that our deserving Early Childhood Educators receive.

The OCBCC has launched a petition to continue the Provincial Wage Enhancement Grant to Registered Early Childhood Educators and child care workers in licensed child care. This funding provides $2 per hour in wage support to many educators and it is critical that it continues. Funding has not yet been confirmed beyond March 31, 2019. The future of the grant is in the hands of the provincial government and will be decided by the Ontario Budget this spring.

Print, sign and share the Provincial Wage Enhancement Grant Petition.

IMPORTANT: Infection and Illness Control

Every Cook’s staff member helps to reduce the outbreak of infectious diseases and illnesses in our program by following strict and regulated hygiene, sanitation and infection prevention and control practices.

Parents/guardians are asked to also help control the spread of illness among the children and staff.

Parents/guardians are asked to keep children experiencing symptoms of contagious ill-health at home until the signs are no longer present. Symptoms include, but are not limited to:

  • fever
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • discharge from the eyes
  • skin rashes or itching
  • severe or croupy coughs

Health checks are completed at each child’s arrival and throughout the day by editions to help minimize the spread of illness in the centre. When symptoms of ill-health are observed, the child may not remain in care (will not be admitted for the day or parent/guardian will be notified and asked to pick the child up).

When a child is at home or sent home due to illness, infection, fever, and/or medication is required (e.g., antibiotic, eye drops, etc.), the child must be free of symptoms and/or using the medication for not less than 24 hours before returning to the program. If your child is ill with the flu or flu-like symptoms during the night, the child must be kept home the following day.

In some cases, a medical certificate may be required for re-admittance (e.g., skin rash confirmed not a risk to others).

If your child is too ill to attend elementary school, he or she is also too ill to attend our program.

Thanks to our supporters!

Cook’s School Day Care Inc appreciates all who support our organization!

In 2018, friends of Cook’s generously provided much-appreciated funding assistance and donations to help offset the costs of program enhancements. They include:

  • Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) to add a barrier-free washroom and to automate our main entrance and elevator doors.
  • County of Northumberland to assist with our barrier-free projects, expansion of our preschool spaces (toys, equipment, furnishings), and several repairs and maintenance jobs.
  • Friends of Cook’s including Part Time CFO Services, the Grozier family, two fiends who prefer to remain anonymous, and several registered families.

Cook’s is a registered charity and can issue tax receipts for donations. Please keep Cook’s in mind when considering a charitable donation contribution. Thank you!
