Can I visit the camp during the day to see my child?
Is it a problem if my child isn't toilet trained yet?
What if my child is afraid of the water?
What if my child has food allergies?
Nut Free Zone
Hillcrest is a 100% nut-free environment.
The number of children with food allergies is increasing. Our goal is to create a safe environment for all students with allergic children. Anaphylaxis is a life-threatening reaction to a specific allergen, most commonly peanuts, nuts, eggs and fish. Immediate medical attention is required.
All allergic students must have 2 epi-pens at school at all times. One is kept in the classroom with the student, and one is kept in the office.
Our nut-free policy requires all lunches/birthday treats brought into the school, be in their original packaging so we can confirm ingredients and any potential allergens. A list of nut-free snacks is distributed to parents to assist in making safe choices when packing their child's lunch. Lunches are checked daily. If any unsafe items are found, they will be discarded to avoid any potential allergic reactions.
We appreciate your cooperation in keeping Hillcrest a safe environment for all children.
Clean Hand Zone
At Hillcrest, student health and safety is our primary concern.
All classrooms are equipped with child-friendly antibacterial hand soap dispensers. On a regular basis throughout the day, especially before eating and after washroom routine, children wash their hands. We know that childhood illnesses are common in school environments, so we do our best to prevent the spread of illness, and to reinforce healthy hand-washing habits.
