WAITLIST

Trent Child Care has a centralized waitlist for its eight sites. To gain access to the waitlist, families must complete an online registration form at the links on the right (password = trent) or call the Executive Assistant at 705-775-0045 ext. 1 to provide the required information.

WAITLIST PRIORITIES:

Top Priorities for Trent Child Cares waitlist for all sites:

  1. Siblings of current participants. To be included on the waitlist the family must provide the Administration Office with a waitlist registration form.
  2. Families waiting for a transfer to another site.
  3. Children of current TCC employees. To be included on the waitlist, the employee must provide the Administration Office with a waitlist registration form. 
  4. Returning families. To be included on the waitlist, the family must provide the Administration Office with a waitlist registration form. The time span between the withdrawal of a family and their new waitlist registration must not exceed two years. To gain access to the program, a child must be returning to TCC or be the sibling of a child previously enrolled.

Special Consideration:

Special consideration may be given to families on the waitlist who risk losing their newly granted fee subsidy if they do not secure a child care space within a specific time frame, and to children referred to TCC by support organizations with which it has a partnership.

NOTE: Waitlist priorities render the waitlist dynamic, which means that a first place on the waitlist may be pushed down by a new waitlist family with a higher priority.

Also at the Trent Campus Site:

To respect an agreement between Trent Child Care and Trent University (TU), which states that, to the best of its ability, TCC will fill its child care spaces with the following ratios: 1/3 TU students, 1/3 TU staff and faculty and 1/3 community members, priority is given accordingly to Trent University students, staff and faculty at its site located on the Symons Campus.

Waitlist Management

To ensure that families gain access to TCC’s programs in the shortest time possible, the following practices are put in place:

  1. The date of registration on the waitlist will reflect the date the registration form was received by TCC;
  2. A family who refuses a space the first time it is offered will retain its priority on the wait list;
  3. A family who refuses a space when offered a second time will be placed at the end of the waitlist;
  4. A family who refuses a third offer will be withdrawn from TCC’s waitlist. Once withdrawn, a family must forward a new registration form to start the process over again.
  5. We ask families to keep us up to date. Please call or e-mail TCC to make changes to contact information.
  6. To inquire about your position on the waitlist, please call the Executive Assistant at 705-775-0045
  7. No holding fee is required when a family submits a waitlist registration.

When a space becomes available, the family at the top of the waitlist will be contacted, whether the space is full-time or part-time. Once a child is registered, it becomes possible to eventually accommodate for more specific needs, for example, going from a part-time to a full-time space or changing TCC site.
