Nutrition, Food & Beverages
Currently, we are offering four hot lunches per week at our NCC location only. Please see the office for current hot lunch rates and menus. Hot Lunch Fees are in addition to childcare fees and will be added to your monthly invoice. Payments for hot lunches are due along with childcare fees.

Please note that we are a peanut/nut safe facility.

Nutritious Lunches are strongly encouraged at NCC.  As written in the Parent Policies, we request that parents send a nutritious lunch with a variety of foods from the Canada Food Guide.  Please send a minimum of 3 healthy food options, and only a small treat if one is necessary.  This rule includes Infants.  If we feel lunches are lacking we will supplement them and may need to charge you for the extra. We do not serve soft drinks to the children.

Daily Snacks, both morning and afternoon, are provided for the children.  Each snack includes a fruit or vegetable and food from at least one other food group.

Subsidy
Families who are unable to meet the full cost of care may apply for financial assistance through Manitoba Early Learning and Child Care. An application can be accessed through the website www.gov.mb.ca/childcare or by requesting a form at the office. Any unsubsidized amounts are the responsibility of the family. It is the family’s responsibility to provide all necessary documents and meet all government requests and deadlines in order to benefit from subsidy. Please talk to the Director if you require assistance or additional information. If subsidy has not yet been approved at the time of enrolment, families will be charged the full amount and credit will be issued once approval is given.

Late Fees
Northland Childcare Centre’s budget is in accordance to funding. We reserve the right to cancel a child’s spot and may take legal action if fees are not paid in accordance to policy.  Please communicate with the Director if family circumstances deem it necessary to make alternate payment arrangements. Late fees will be charged according to policies.
