Membership to the Fernie Child Care Society is a one-time, lifetime family membership/society fee of $5. All clients of the FCCS are required to purchase a lifetime membership.
When a full‐time or part-time application is received it is placed onto our waitlist. While our goal is to provide child care for as many families as possible, our wait list does NOT operate on a “first come, first serve basis.” When a spot becomes available it is offered to those on our waitlist based on the follow priorities, in this order:
Children already enrolled with FCCS in the Infant-Toddler program who are ready to move to the Kindergarten Readiness program.
Children who are already enrolled with FCCS, who are waitlisted to increase their time on a permanent basis.
Siblings of children currently enrolled in a program with FCCS
Children returning after an absence of no more than 12 months due to a parent's maternal or paternal leave or serious family illness.
Children of the staff at FCCS.
Children from the community and area to which the above groups do not apply.
USEFUL REGISTRATION RESOURCES
*Please note, due to the high volume of applications received and current lengthy waitlist, Fernie Child Care Society will no longer be accepting waitlist applications for the 2022/23 year. Please check back in 2023 to see if any intake opens.*
