Winter Menu Starts October 25

The winter menu is starting soon.  A copy can be accessed here.

If your child has limitations/allergies to any item on the menu, be sure to inform the administration in writing.  It is helpful if you print a copy of the menu, highlight the items that you need to substitute, write the child’s name on the paper copy, and submit it for our records.  If you need a paper copy to do this, please ask.

When you provide variations or substitutions due to restrictions/allergies, you must:

  • Clearly label the items with the child’s name.
  • Inform the staff you are providing a substitution when dropping off your child to ensure the items are properly stored until used.
  • Provide items that are comparable to what is being served by the program every day a substitution is supplied.
  • Important:  if you note your child is unable to consume any items on the menu, you must provide a substitution each day the items are being served.  The program does not supply alternate menu items.

Daily Proof of Child Passing Covid-19 Screening Tool Required

Effective Monday, April 5 it will be mandatory for you to show the results of your child passing the online screening tool before entry will be permitted. 

The link for the online screening tool is available here.  You may:

  • show a paper copy or the results on your phone/tablet to the Cook’s screener at the entrance.
  • email the results to cooks.home@cooksdaycare.ca (home child care families) or vic.park@cooksdaycare.ca (centre families) before your child arrives at the door.
  • use our sanitized iPad upon arrival, if necessary.  You may need to wait if there is a lineup of families waiting to enter.

Health & Safety First
We are providing a couple of days notice to allow you time to be sure that anyone who may be dropping off your child is prepared and fully aware of this requirement.

Reminders for EVERY Day Your Child Attends  

  • The Cook’s screener cannot welcome your child into the program until their screening results have been viewed. 
  • Only children and educators are permitted inside the door at this time.

Thanks to the many families who have already been providing screening proof.  Appreciated!
