Thank-you for your interest in the Golden Rule KinderCare Program.
Roland Michener school currently offers half day, every day kindergarten.
KinderCare is intended for families at Roland Michener school with a child enrolled in morning kindergarten as another option for child care located within the school community. One pick up, one drop off for all school days. Kindercare is offered for the duration of the half day kindergarten day, when your child attends kindergarten in the morning.
KinderCare is available as follows:
For morning kindergarten students - to the end of the school day (current bell time 3:25 pm); we pick students up from their class when the lunchbell rings (currently 11:45).
If you require care before 8:55 am or past 3:35 pm you have the option of using Golden Rule Before & After School Program. This program starts at 7:30 and runs until the first bell and also starts again after school at 3:25, and runs until 6pm. This program is charged on an hourly basis with a one hour minimum charge and billed to the minute after that. Registration for this part of our program will be sent out prior to school starting and can be used on a part time, full time or drop in basis. The charge for this program is $4.80 per hour and billed at the end of each month for time used.
KinderCare will begin on the first regular day of Kindergarten.
Students can attend kindercare on their staggered start days.
Holidays & school closures will follow the Saskatoon Public School’s calendar. When there is no kindergarten, there is no KinderCare.
The fee structure is as follows:
$175.00 per month for 3 or less days per week which will include lunch supervision

Your child must be enrolled in an AM kindergarten class at Roland Michener school to qualify for KinderCare. Enrollment in kindergarten is at the discretion of the school.
The kindergarten students will be supervised over the lunch hour. Lunch hour supervision is included as part of the monthly fee. As with all Roland Michener students, staying for lunch is a privilege and not a right and this service can be dismissed at any time. All parents are provided with a copy of the lunchroom guidelines at the start of the school year. Your child must be attending KinderCare on a specific day in order for them to stay for lunch on that day. Otherwise they must be picked up at the dismissal of AM kindergarten at 11:45.
Withdrawing your child from KinderCare
We must be given one month’s notice in writing of the withdrawal of your child. The full tuition for the one month must be paid even if you withdraw your child prior to completing the month. Golden Rule Preschool reserves the right to terminate KinderCare services at our own discretion should things not work out between your family and the KinderCare Program. See below.
Golden Rule Preschool and KinderCare Program reserves the right of terminating the contract if:
• we are unable to meet the needs of the child/children to be determined on a per child basis
• Excessive late pick-up.
• More than three checks are returned from the bank.
We will communicate will all registered families primarily via email, text or the remind App. Please be sure to add our email address, email@example.com to your address book so you receive all notices from us.
