Our Waitlist Policy

When XaXe SŦELIṮḴEL Childcare Centre is at full capacity, we will run an active waitlist of a total of 50 children.  We will cap our waitlist at 20 applications.  Before you mail or drop off your application, please check our website to ensure we are accepting new registrations.  We will not accept applications via email or fax as it will be considered “incomplete” without a registration fee.

If you are on our waitlist, it is the caregiver's responsibility to keep in contact with the centre to ensure the application is “active”.  We ask caregivers to do a periodical check in via email (daycare@vnfc.ca) and if we have not heard from you within a year of applying, we will consider the file “inactive”. 

When a spot comes available the applicants will be contacted on a first come, first serve basis.  The applicant will have 2 business days to respond before the centre moves on to the next applicant and the initial applicant will be placed at the bottom of the list.

XaXe STELITKEL does give priority to childcare staff, VNFC staff and siblings who are already attending the centre.
