CHILD CARE SPACE EXPANSION

Education Minister Russ Marchuk today announced the names of 15 communities that will receive new child care spaces as a result of this year’s budget.

“It is my pleasure during Early Childhood Education Month to announce the locations of government’s increases this year of 500 new child care spaces,” Marchuk said.  “As a result, more families across the province will have access to child care that will in turn help them take advantage of the opportunities as a result of our growing economy.  Thanks to the work of early childhood educators in licensed child care homes and centres, children benefit from play-based experiences that are essential for development and that contribute to later success in all areas of life.”

This year’s investment will raise the number of high-quality licensed child care spaces to more than 13,700.  The Government of Saskatchewan’s record investment since 2007 has brought 4,435 new licensed child care spaces – a 48 per cent increase – to communities across the province.

The communities receiving child care spaces include: La Ronge, Humboldt, Weyburn, La Ronge, Martensville, Saskatoon, Regina, Swift Current, Prince Albert, Macklin, Paradise Hill, Outlook, St. Louis, Cabri, Fort Qu’Appelle and Nokomis.
