2021 Parent Handbooks

Cook’s provides an updated Parent Handbook at the beginning of each calendar year.

The 2021 version includes information relating to Covid-19, the change to the preauthorized payment options, the fee guide, and so much more.

Please take some time to become familiar with the information provided and use your handbook as a helpful reference.

In the near future, hard copies will be supplied to home child care families through your provider and centre families may receive a copy during screening if you wish.

Here are the links to the 2021 handbooks:

Annual Information Review

At the beginning of each calendar year, we ask all families to confirm that the information we have on file for your child remains current.

Please take a moment to complete the Annual Information Form at the link provided. The pdf can be filled in and submitted when opened.

If you wish to view your child’s current application, please let us know and arrangements will be made to allow that to happen.

Screening During Colder Weather

We are allowing each individual family to step inside and close the door while being screened. This offers a little warmth for you during screening and helps to keep it warm inside. We still must maintain the physically distanced waiting line until further notice. Cook’s continues to receive and follow the direction of health officials.

We are all waiting for the day when we can welcome families back inside to experience the programs and strengthen your connections with your child’s educators.

Backpacks are OK!

With the colder weather upon us, we understand you will need to bring bulkier items for your child.  We invite you to bring your child’s belongings in a backpack instead of a plastic bag, if you wish.

Important:  ALL backpacks must go home every night to allow for thorough disinfection of the storage and cubby areas.
