Current Fees

Our current fees for child care services at BLC are listed below. 

Registration Fee

Once your child is offered a space, a $30.00 per child non-refundable registration fee is required upon acceptance of the space.  This registration fee is a one-time charge and provides you with your membership at BLC while your child is actively attending the centre, as well as offsetting the costs for your family account set up and new child registration.

Security Deposit

Once your child is offered a space, a refundable security deposit of $250.00 per child is required upon acceptance of the space.  This security deposit will be returned to you once your child leaves the centre.

Monthly Child Care Fees

All of our programs are full day programs.  We do not offer any half day programs.
