We respectfully request one month notice, but only require two weeks (10 business days) notice in writing when a child leaves the program. Please ensure that you also inform your Home Child Care Consultant and Provider. A call to the Accounting Office will ensure that your next payment after notice period, will not be processed.

Fee Adjustments

AFCS clients will be given at least one month notice in regard to any changes or increases in our agency child care fee schedule.

Upon admission into care, your first payment is due on or before the first day of care and is pro-rated to the number of billable days in that bi-weekly billable period. This first payment can be made by cheque, cash or credit card.​

Your monthly fee will be calculated by the total number of days care as per your contract, regardless of whether your child is absent through holidays or illness. Longer hours or extra days will require an additional charge. Receipts for the fees collected the previous year are provided annually by the end of February.
