Care offered for La Salle youngsters

  • Print

The La Salle Community Centre is now offering before and after-school care for local children aged 6 to 12.

Centre recreation director Tom Cardinal said the care program opened on Nov. 4 with about nine children from seven families registered. The cost per child is $15 a day.

Originally, the before and after-school care program was to begin in January 2014, following the opening of the new La Salle Community Centre. However, Cardinal said, the date was moved up after a local, unlicensed home daycare operation closed, leaving some parents without care for their children.

Following a meeting between the centre’s board members, local school officials, and representatives from the La Salle KIDZ Daycare Initiative group, a decision was made to hire program staff.

The program’s hours are from 7 to 9 a.m. and 3:30 to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday. Staff members walk children to and from La Salle School.

The centre is also offering school break day camps on in-service days and school holidays. The cost is $25 per day.

The care programs will move into the new centre, which is scheduled to open on Jan. 18.

"People are looking forward to the new centre opening," Cardinal said.
