Lunches and Snacks

Parents are responsible to send a nutritious lunch if their child is attending for a full day or half day over the lunch hour. When your child attends any of our programs, a nutritious morning and afternoon snack is provided by the center.


Transportation may be provided to and from your child’s local school by fully qualified drivers in a school bus owned by Alberni Valley Childcare Society. Please speak with the program manager to discuss your needs.


Payment for your childcare fees may be made at any site or through e-transfer. An unofficial receipt is issued at the time of payment and official receipts for income tax purposes are sent out before February 28 of each year.

Payments are due according to our payment policies, on the 1st business day of each month.
