Inspiring Minds Early Learning Centre is committed to providing a safe environment for children, families, employees and volunteers. While we realize that centre closure causes an inconvenience for families, there may be times when such an action is necessary, such as:
- Insufficient number of educators to operate within ratios
- Inclement weather or road conditions
- Power outages
- Other key business closures
- Health or licensing directive
In these circumstances, we ask for your co-operation and patience as we strive to maintain everyone’s safety.
Inspiring Minds ELC will follow the Waterloo Region District School Board’s (WRDSB) lead for closing our centre during severe weather. If the WRDSB closes all schools due to weather and/or road conditions, Inspiring Minds ELC will close all programs. If the WRDSB closes all schools due to frigid temperatures, Inspiring Minds ELC before and after kindergarten and school age programs will close; the toddler and preschool programs will remain open.
In circumstances other than closure due to inclement weather and road conditions, or when the WRDSB is not operating, the supervisor or designate will consult with the Board of Directors President and or Vice-President to determine whether the centre will remain open.
Families are encouraged to listen to CHYM-FM and 570 NEWS for updates regarding Inspiring Minds ELC closures. Every effort will be made to notify registered families via email, our website, Facebook page and voice mail as well as a notification on the main entrance.
