• Whitney Child Centre Photographs/Video Release Form

    The WCC staff frequently take photographs or video recording of children and post images of the children in the classroom, hallway and lobby. These images may be used in observations, postings, class made books, etc. These are posted in the Centre and sometimes sent home with parents as part of an observation. These photographs may include individual children or groups of children.

    Pictures may be printed and sent home, or may be sent electronically to families. Media display is an important part of our documentation, demonstrating children’s growth, progress and development throughout the year.

    - The Whitney Child Centre contracts a photographer annually to take individual and class pictures of each child.
    - Prior to field trips, with the exception of neighbourhood walks, staff take a photograph of each child to be used in the event of an emergency on the trip.
    - I understand that as a parent in the Centre I am not permitted to take any photographs or camera footage of my child, or of any other children in the Centre, without permission from the Supervisor or a staff member. With permission from the Supervisor or a staff member, I may take a picture of my child in the Centre, alone or with a teacher, providing no other children are present. Parents are permitted to film or take pictures at special events at the WCC. These events include, but are not limited to graduation, holiday parties, WCC BBQ.
    - The Centre will not give any person, other than a WCC staff or parent, permission to take photographs or film of any child without first informing the parents and having each parent sign a media release form.
