Wait List

Wait List Application

St. Lawrence Co-operative Day Care Inc. has created and maintains a centralized waitlist for its four centres.

A child is added to the waitlist after contact is made online, over the phone, by email or in person.

St. Lawrence Co-operative Day Care Inc. does not charge a fee to add a Child’s name to the wait list.

All waitlist applications will be placed in a Waitlist Binder and stored in a lockable cabinet to secure and maintain the confidentiality of all applicants.

Children are accepted into the daycare on a first come, first served basis based on the date of application.

Priorities considered are as follows:

  • Siblings of children already in our centres

When a spot becomes available, parents/guardians are called in order of the placement on the wait list. If a parent/guardian declines the spot then the next parent on the list is called until a parent accepts the spot and at that point the spot is considered filled.

It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to contact the centre to confirm their spot every 6 months. This can be done in person, by phone or by email. A child’s name is removed from the list when there has been no contact from the parent/guardian in a 6 month period of time.

It is also the responsibility of the parent/guardian to notify SLCD if any changes need to be made to their application (ie. an address change, change of date of when care is required).

If a spot remains unfilled by following the above waitlist process, then parents/guardians on the City of Toronto waitlist will be called in order based on the age group spot available on a first come, first serve basis.
