More child care announced for Terrace, B.C.

Two organizations to receive money from a provincial government program

  • Jun. 6, 2015 7:00 a.m.

THE provincial government says it’s going to sign agreements with two local organizations to increase the amount of licensed child-care spaces in the area.

Based on project agreements, the Kermode Friendship Society is to receive $499,721 to create 62 spaces – 12 for infants and 50 for children aged three to five years – at its Kermode Child Care Centre.

And in Thornhill, the Rock Christian Community non-denominational church is to receive $380,885 for 56 spaces – 12 for infants/toddlers, 24 for children aged three to five years and 20 for school-age children – in the school district’s closed Copper Mountain school.

The church has been renting meeting space in the school for some years.

The money for more child care spaces in the area is part of a $8.2 million provincial expansion program announced June 5.

Money for the Kermode Friendship Society represents 75 per cent of the costs of its expansion while the money for the Rock Christian Community represents 90 per cent of the costs of its expansion.

The two local organizations are among 26 child care providers across the province to receive money under the expansion.
