March 19th, 2020

Dear Families, The Whistler Children’s Centre has made the difficult yet ethical decision to close the Centre effective today, March 19 at 5:30pm. We will remain closed until May 1st. The Board and I will meet on April 20th and make a decision at that time effecting operations beyond May 1st. Under these strenuous and extraordinary circumstances we have received little guidance from our Provincial leaders. BC is one of only 3 provinces and territories that has not received provincial guidance to close child care centres. Our Minister of State of Child Care has only provided solace in saying that we are supported in whatever decisions we make. It was important to us to keep the Centre open this week to determine how many families required our services. It was apparent very quickly that most families were keeping their children at home and our services were not being utilized. Our teachers, children, and families health and wellbeing was at the forefront of all of our decision making as well as the viability of the Children’s Centre. At this time April enrollment will be frozen and no fees will be collected during our April closure. All fees collected for March have been utilized for employee wages and operating expenses for the month of March, and therefore will not be refunded. We will communicate again, via email, the week of April 20th to provide you with an update. We understand that each family is facing their own unique challenges. We appreciate your understanding during these exceptional circumstances. Executive Director Kari Gaudet .
