A La Carte Child Care

We are excited to officially announce that RCC will be transitioning from infant & child care to before & after school this fall.

Our local school is Ecole Grosvenor Wentworth Park School. EGWPS is a 10 minute walk from RCC, which is located in our home in the Wedgewood subdivision.

For everyone on our infant/child care Wait List, feel free to send us an email if you would like suggestions on other facilities in the area!

To all current RCC families and alumni, thank you for your continued love & support over the past six years. It’s been a wild ride and I can’t imagine having done it with anyone else! xo

Please spread the word about our new before & after school program, starting September 2017. For more info, drop us a line: info@rockinghamchildcare.ca



At Rockingham Child Care, we offer a very unique service for our families – a la carte child care Plans. We feel as though the hustle and bustle of every morning is hectic enough, and hope our varying Plans can make this just a little easier on your family. See below to find a Plan that best suits your requirements!


  1. Daily child care – $40
    • Plan A covers daily child care at our daycare. Each day you send 2 snacks and pre-made lunch + milk/juice. You provide your own diapers and wipes, which are kept at the daycare and replenished as required. We are cloth diaper friendly but prefer store-bought wipes.


  1. Daily child care + all snacks, meals, milk, juice – $43
    • Plan B covers daily child care, 2 healthy snacks, wholesome lunch, milk and juice (if permitted). You provide your own diapers and wipes, which are kept at the daycare and replenished as required. We are cloth diaper friendly but prefer store-bought wipes.


  1. Daily child care + all snacks, meals, milk, juice + diapers & wipes  – $46
    • Plan C covers it all. Just drop off your child and go! (Note: diapers and wipes are Pampers or Huggies).


Included with all Plans is access to extracurricular weekly programming such as yoga, Kindermusik and art.


For those children on Plan B or C, we offer “favourites Friday” and incorporate each child’s favourite foods every Friday on a rotational basis. Note: Rockingham Child Care is 100% peanut-free.


Once you’ve chosen the Plan that is right for your child, your monthly rate is calculated based on the number of week days in that month. We require your monthly payment on the first of each month. Should you switch Plans, it will be effective the first of the next month.

Vacation Days:
Payment of your childcare is based on a monthly amount; therefore, any day that your child is away from the daycare due to illness or vacation, you are still required to pay in full. Rockingham Child Care will be closed for 20 calendar days a year for vacation (other than the holidays noted above). There will be ample notice given so that you can make alternative arrangements and these days will not be days that are paid by you (Unlike some centres which require you withdraw your child for a specified amount of time a year or paid vacation for caregivers in smaller environments, we have chosen an slightly higher daily rate with vacation pay factored in.)


Sick Days:
Parents are asked to keep their child home if they are showing any signs of illness or have a fever. See complete illness policy in the Parent Manual.


Notice Of Withdrawal:
As this is a small home operated business, we require 4 weeks written notice of withdrawal or 4 weeks payment in lieu of. Note: as payment is required on the first of the month, any notice given after the first will be for two months following.


Cheques are to be made payable to: Rockingham Child Care. Receipts for income tax purposes will be issued for the full calendar year by mid-February. A $20 NSF Fee will applied for any returned cheques. Rockingham Child Care is a registered business but not currently licensed; therefore, no government subsidized spots are available at this time.
