Our program fees are competitive and always will be
Parent fees are approved annually by the PLASP Board of Directors and cover more than 80% of the organization's operating budget. As a charitable organization operating on a not-for-profit basis, we invest in our programs by hiring highly trained and qualified staff and paying them accordingly.
No hidden costs
Parent fees cover all expenses for your child in the program including supervision, breakfast, snacks, crafts, games, and special events. When enrolling your child in a PLASP program, you will be required to pay the following:
Administrative fee: All families are required to pay a non-refundable administrative fee per family.
Deposit: To reserve space for September, parents are required to pay a non-refundable deposit. This applies to both full-time and part-time space. This deposit will be applied to the program fees in September. This requirement will apply to all parents in all school boards unless relevant municipal or school board requirements dictate otherwise.
Fees: Fees are set based on a full school year. To keep administrative costs down, payments for fees are made through pre-authorized payments, directly from your bank account, for children registered in full-time programs (Before School, Lunch, After School and P.A. Days). Fees are prorated; parents are not charged for March Break, Christmas holidays and school holidays.
At PLASP, we are committed to working with you to develop payment arrangements suitable to meet your needs. Should you need assistance with your fee payments, please call the Accounting Department at the PLASP Head Office at 905-890-1711. Please note: An administrative fee will be charged for any payments that are returned with insufficient funds.
Cancellations: We don’t want to see you go, but if you decide to cancel, you must do so by logging in to your profile in the parent web portal. Click the “Cancel Request” button on the welcome page, or select “Cancel Programs” under “My Programs.” Select a cancellation date (identified by a red dot) from the online calendar, at least one week (five business days) prior to the next pre-authorized payment date. As of July 1, 2019, our new cancellation policy will require cancellations to be submitted 10 business days prior to the next scheduled pre-authorized payment day. To ensure cost-effective operations and reasonable fees, it is important for parents to give PLASP the required notification to allow enough time to fill vacancies. If a program is cancelled, or if a child is withdrawn as outlined in our Withdrawal of Care Policy, PLASP will send an email to confirm the cancellation. Please see the PLASP fee calendar for cancellation and payment dates throughout the year.
Refunds: A refund of 50% of your full‐time fees for each day absent will be issued if your child is absent for 10 consecutive days due to hospitalization or illness. A written request for the refund and a doctor’s
certificate will be required by PLASP prior to the provision of the refund.
If schools are closed or PA Day programs/trips are cancelled for any reason beyond PLASP’s control, PLASP will provide a 50% refund for up to two days per school year.
All refunds will be processed as an adjustment to the next scheduled payment.
Refunds are not issued for:
• Occasional absences by your child due to illness,
• administrative fees or deposits
• Cancellations from the program made with less than 5 business days’ notice (10 business day's notice after July 1, 2019)
• Unused part‐time visits by your child; or
• Any absences due to vacations taken by your family during the school year.
Discounts: Families with three or more children enrolled in PLASP programs qualify for a 50% discount for the child(ren) with the lowest-priced fees.
Subsidy: Families can apply for fee subsidy from the Regional Municipality of Peel or the City of Toronto. Learn more about available subsidies.
