Get to know us:
Our Staff are carefully selected for their personal qualities, friendliness, warmth, ability to relate to children and adults and educational/training background. Continuous evaluation and training of our staff ensures the ongoing high quality care for your children. We encourage you to express any concerns you have to your child's instructor or to Amanda our Junior Activities Coordinator.
Hours of Operation:
Please refer to the class information tab for times of each program.
Clothing & Possessions:
Children should be dressed in casual, comfortable clothing suitable for the weather conditions and program specifications. Accidents do happen, so we like to keep an extra set of clothing in their backpacks. To help keep everything organized and minimize loss, please label all bags and clothing with your child's name.
Transportation (New for 2017)
This year we are offering transportations for children in our program from Front Park, Buffalo to the Buffalo Canoe Club. This is perfect for those hectic mornings trying to get your children across the border to the Club and make it back to work. This is and additional cost of $35/day and if interested please check yes on the registration form. You will need to have a notarized form completed before you send your child. Please click here to find the form. You can also call Amanda in the Office if you have any questions.
Please do not send candy, sugar snacks, gum, any items contain nuts, etc. to the Club. For those attending a full day class, a supervised lunch break is included. Please pack a lunch or patronize our Snack Bar. A Snack Bar order form will be e-mailed to you the week before your child is registered in our program as your can pre-book their lunch for the week.
Health & Illness:
If a child's illness prevents him/her from participation or being comfortable in normal program activities, or if the staff can not provide the care required, the child will be considered too ill to attend. Should your child become ill during the day you will be contacted immediately to pick up your child. All children play outside for most of the day. If your child is not well enough to go, please keep him/her at home.
Our staff will only administer prescription medication. Parents will need to sign a medication authorization form outlining dosages and times to be given. For safety reasons, medications must be in the original container, must be clearly labeled with the child's name, date, name of drug, instructions for storage and administration of the drug.
Program fees are charged in full to your Member account the month you registered. If an adjustment on your payment is required, it is reflected in the following month. Please contact Amanda in the Office for details regarding the fees for the program or service you need.
Full fees are charged for weeks with statutory holidays and weeks/days which children miss any part due to illness. Long term default on payment of fees will result in termination of care for the child.
A late fess of $5.00 for every 10 minutes or part thereof will be charged after 4:00 pm (unless you have registered for the late pick-up in Day Camp only, the charge would then apply after 4:30 pm) If there is an emergency and you are going to be late, we ask that you call the Club to notify our staff.
A $50.00 fee will apply for ANY cancellations OR changes that are received. There are NO REFUNDS OR SCHEDULE CHANGES 7 days prior or less then 7 days prior to the course start date. No refund would be granted for dismissal or removal due to ill behavior.
Members have priority in program registration. Non-Members may register at any time, however if there are space constraints a Member may take a Non-Member's spot up until 2 weeks prior to the start of the class and a full refund will be given to the Non-Member. We will also make every effort to accommodate your child's program needs. Non-Members will be subject to a 20 % surcharge which is listed with the program fee.
