Creation of 1,015 New Child Care Centre Spaces
Saskatchewan will align with federal early learning and child care priorities and create 1,015 new child care centre spaces for children under six years old by 2020. Allocation of spaces will support holistic child development. Communities with a high need for child care will be considered, and organizations prioritizing child care services for families and children experiencing vulnerability will be prioritized. If you are interested in applying to develop a child care centre, additional information may be found here. The application deadline is May 11, 2018.
Creation of 1,500 New Licensed Family Child Care Home Spaces
The Government of Saskatchewan will be supporting the increase of licensed family child care homes by 1,500 spaces by 2020. This will not only increase availability of child care for families across the province, but create employment opportunities for those interested in caring for children within their homes.
