New Daycare Spaces Coming Available In January

Some good news for parents from the local Y.
Starting Monday, the Y will be taking applications for 81 new child care seats that will come available at Lac de Bois School in January. There will be 12 spaces for infant to toddler ages, 25 for three to five year olds, 20 pre-school spaces and 24 after-school spaces.
“Those would be for children looking to start care in January,” explains Lynette Mikalishen, the Y’s Director of Child Care Services. “So parents that are looking to go back to work or are needing child care  arrangements for January would be opening registration on Monday.”
The project has been many months in the making and will help to alleviate some of the pressures to find child care. But the demand is huge.
“We currently have a wait list of about 160 children, not all for January, obviously.  That could be from now until nine months from now, perhaps. But we do know there’s a huge demand for infant-toddler care.”
However, the Y will only be taking applications n person, not via the phone or email.
