Daycare centre gets a boost

Community Futures Okanagan Similkameen has donated $5,000 to the new daycare on Okanagan College’s Penticton campus.

The Little Learners childcare centre opened in September, serving 48 children of college students, staff and the greater community.

“A child care centre right on campus is a wonderful expansion of the College’s offerings for students,” says Clee Roy, General Manager of Community Futures.

“We are excited about the big picture of what this project means for the students and parents in the local workforce that will benefit from it.”

Roy says they focus support on projects that create long-term economic and social development in the region.

“Providing access to child care gives parents opportunities to pursue education for skills training or continue to participate and gain valuable experience in the workforce,” he explains, adding they were also attracted to the project due to its eco-friendly construction.
