Province Allocates Nearly 600 Child Care Centre Spaces

Released on April 18, 2018

The Government of Saskatchewan has now allocated nearly 600 of the 1,015 licensed child care centre spaces committed to through the Canada-Saskatchewan Early Learning Child Care Agreement.  Signed earlier this year, the agreement provides Saskatchewan with nearly $41 million to improve early learning and child care over three years, including 1,500 licensed group and family child care home spaces.

“Affordable, high-quality child care allows parents to work or attend school knowing that their children are being cared for in a safe and nurturing environment,” Deputy Premier and Education Minister Gordon Wyant said.  “We are pleased to inform communities across the province they will be receiving funding for additional child care spots.  We are thrilled our children will be having fun and learning in these facilities in the near future.”

Communities receiving spaces include Regina, Saskatoon, Prince Albert, North Battleford, Yorkton, Moose Jaw, Nipawin, Fort Qu’Appelle, Balcarres and LeRoy.

The Ministry of Education continues to receive applications and will allocate more licensed child care centre spaces later this spring.  Interested organizations have until May 11, 2018 to submit their applications and are encouraged to apply.

The Government of Saskatchewan is committed to increasing access to quality early learning and child care opportunities that support positive child development, early literacy and student achievement.  Funding has been allocated for nearly 7,000 spaces since 2007, for a total of nearly 17,000 funded licensed child care spaces in Saskatchewan.
