Country Kids Centre set to move into school

  • Print

Country Kids Learning Centre’s staff will be packing up building blocks, books and blankets this summer as they prepare to move into leased space in St. Francois Xavier Community School.


The daycare centre now shares a building with S.F.X. Country Store in St. Francois Xavier.


At their April 8 meeting, Prairie Rose School Division trustees passed a motion agreeing to lease school space to the daycare centre until June 30, 2014.


Country Kids board vice-chair Candy Burke said this is a positive move for the centre’s nine staff, approximately 76 children and their parents.


"We’re very excited about the move because it’s going to create so many positive opportunities," she said.


She added that the daycare’s children will now be able to become familiar with the school building, making their transition into the school system an easier one. Parents who have children in daycare, and older children in the school, will find it easier with all their children in one location.


Burke said, while the move into the school is good, she and the other board members are continuing to work toward having a new daycare centre built.


They recently received a $25,000 Community Places grant that is designated for their building campaign.


While she’s not able to provide a time frame for the new building, Burke said she’s confident it will happen within the next few years.


"It’s that one step closer," she said.
