April 7, 2021
Dear Sunny Faces Parents,
Yesterday, Toronto Public Health (TPH), announced that all schools in Toronto, will be closed to in-person learning as of Wednesday, April 7, 2021 and remain closed up to and including Sunday, April 18, 2021. This TPH order is being made under Section 22 of Ontario’s Health Protection and Promotion Act in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19.
Under this order, as of April 7, 2021:
Licensed child care programs will be permitted to offer care to children (infant, toddler, preschool) who do not attend school, including those child care programs that are co-located in a school.
Licensed child care programs for school aged children are not permitted to offer care. These include before and after school programs and any planned non-instructional April Break programs and/or camps.
Sunny Faces Day Care JK/SK Kindergarten programs, along with all School Age programs will be closed in accordance with the TPH shut down. There will be no April Break programs. We are currently scheduled to reopen on Monday April 19th, 2021 however, this will depend on our direction from the Ontario government and TPH.
Sunny Faces Day Care PRESCHOOL program, will continue to operate as usual. We will be processing monthly fees for Preschool families only while we are open. There will be no change to this schedule.
Sunny Faces recognizes that these are stressful times. We appreciate your patience as we work within the regulations to offer our families child care services when we are allowed to do so.
Pending further announcements, JK/SK families and School Age families will not be charged fees until we have a confirmed date for reopening. Once this information is available, families who paid their full April fees will be credited the number of mandatory closure days on their next months fees.
Fee subsidy families will not be charged their daily fee rate during the mandatory closure days.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call the centre at 416 744 0778, or email the management team at firstname.lastname@example.org to reach Lee-Ann Hand. To reach Helen Primi please email email@example.com.
Please be well and stay safe,
