Parent volunteers for field trips and classroom visits

June 16th, 2016 by Anna Gionet No comments »

Dear Families of Orde Day Care;

The Early Years and Child Care Act now requires all individuals who wish to volunteer in the child care, including participating in trips or in the classroom to have a Criminal Reference Check with Vulnerable Screening completed within the last five years.

Only if you are interested in volunteering do we ask that you stop by the daycare office at either location to pick up a Criminal Reference Check with Vulnerable Screening form. We will process the completed forms, along with payment, on your behalf. The cost of obtaining the screening is currently $20.00, and the turnaround time is approximately two weeks.

Individuals cannot access this form from Toronto Police Services, and clearance letters or Criminal Reference Check without Vulnerable Screening is not acceptable substitution .

Alternatively, if you currently have a Criminal Reference Check with Vulnerable Screening that has been completed in the last five years, we ask that you stop by with the original copy of the document.

We will ask you to sign a Declaration of Offense for the period since the Vulnerable Sector Screening was conducted.

Thank you,

Orde Day Care Management
