$195,000 for Labrador West Child Care Centre

The Minister of Education and Early Childhood Development, Al Hawkins, announced $195,922 for Labrador West Child Care Incorporated (LWCC) in Labrador City.

Labrador West Child Care Centre is one of two licensed child care facilities in the area. With this funding, LWCC will create 36 new preschool child care spaces, increasing the centre’s capacity to 93 children. In addition, funds will be used to develop a new outdoor play area and to purchase homeroom materials and equipment.

In addition to the more than $54 million that the Provincial Government invests annually in early childhood development, the three year investment of $22 million through the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Early Learning and Child Care Agreement will result in the addition of 540 spaces in child care centres and family child care homes.
