Confidentiality Policy

Confidentiality at Jack and Jill Parent Participation Preschool refers to all verbal and written information about potential, re-enrolling and former:

• children and families

• employees

It also refers to information related to “in camera” executive meetings discussions and decisions.

All staff and executive members will be expected to fulfill their obligations to respect the protection of privacy of every member of the Preschool.  Each individual will ensure that no private or personal information is revealed that may cause another individual harm.

This excludes the responsibility that service providers and others have as outlined in legislation and /or when information is subpoenaed by the court.

Custody and control of the children’ records will belong solely to Jack and Jill Preschool unless contractual arrangements and/or legislation alter this policy.

No information will be released about a child, the enrolling parent/guardian or an employee, without first receiving written permission of the enrolling parent/guardian or employee.

Personal Information:

If there is a request for information about an employee, written or verbal permission will be sought.  If verbal permission is sought, documentation will be kept noting the date, time and information to be disclosed.  This excludes the responsibility individuals and organizations may have as outlined in legislation (eg: Income Tax Act).
