The Students’ Union, Faculty Association, and the Graduate Students Association all contributed to the construction costs of the new daycare facility. Because of this contribution, these three groups have been designated the first priority users of the 51 childcare space facility. Other user groups will be given access to the facility’s available childcare spaces based on the following priorities:
|Children of students (undergraduate and graduate) and Faculty members||1st|
|Children of University employees other than faculty members (AUPE, APO, Exempt, Executive Directors, Senior Administration, research)||2nd|
|Children of individuals who do not fall into the above 2 priority categories||3rd|
The initial 51 spaces in the daycare are allocated to 1st priority groups and will follow the daycare waitlist process and selection criteria.
Each of the 1st priority groups (Undergraduate Students, Graduate Students and Faculty) will be allocated a specific number of childcare spaces within the facility and each 1st priority group will have its own waitlist. For example, if an undergraduate student childcare space becomes available then the individual at the top of the Undergraduate Student waitlist will be offered the childcare space. If there is no one on that waitlist, the position will be filled by the next individual on the 1st priority waitlist.
The 2nd priority group (children of University employees other than faculty) will be given access to the next available childcare space as long as the Undergraduate Student, Faculty and Graduate Students waitlists are vacant.
The 3rd priority group will be given access to the childcare spaces when the 1st or 2nd priority group waitlists are all vacant.
To be placed on a waitlist, you MUST fill out an online application form, found on the University daycare website.
Any other communications (verbal or written) will NOT be accepted as an application and will not be included on the priority group waitlists.
3rd Priority Group applications are NOT being accepted at this time.
When submitting a new application, you must fill out one child form per child. Individuals may add additional children/siblings to an application at any time by filling out the child form again. Your queue on the application waitlist will be determined by the date in which the first child's application was originally submitted. Any changes you make to your application while on the waitlist, including the addition of a child/sibling will not affect your spot in the waitlist queue.
Individuals are responsible for ensuring that all information on the online application form is up to date and correct. Individuals may update applications at any time by logging into the Daycare site and editing their submissions. Spaces will only be given to individuals within the correct waitlist queue and to the child disclosed on the application.
No. The priorities and waitlists at each facility are different. Individuals must contact A Child’s Second Look directly if they are interested in applying to the non-University A Child’s Second Look daycare facility.
