The Town of Carleton Place and Lanark County are pleased to announce that the expansion and renovation project for Francis Street child care centre is now complete. The ribbon cutting ceremony is taking place on Friday, December 11th, 2020.
The Ontario government through the Community-Based Early Years and Child Care Capital Program (CBCP) provided over 2.9 million dollars for this project. The CBCP funding allowed for an additional 98 spaces for infants, toddlers and preschoolers. This expansion will provide more choice and flexibility for children and families in Carleton Place, which is a commitment of the government of Ontario.
“The completion of the Carleton Place Childcare Services expansion demonstrates our Government’s commitment to providing hard-working families in Lanark County with access to quality, affordable child care,” said Ontario’s Minister of Education Stephen Lecce. “Our government is listening to families across Ontario and delivering up to $1 billion over five years to create new child care spaces and ensure children receive the care they need.”
Lanark County Social Services is the Service System Manager for the Early Years and Licensed Child Care Services under the Child Care and Early Years Act (CCEYA). Responsibilities involve service planning, supporting families and licensed child care providers, and overseeing delivery of the EarlyON Child and Family Centres.
