A new operator has been selected for the licensed child care space at the Gravenhurst Child and Family Hub at 180 Brock Street in Gravenhurst.
The District has announced the good news about the Stepping Stones Early Learning Academy.
The new centre will bring 15 affordable licensed child care spaces to families in Muskoka, bringing the total number of licensed child care spaces in the District to 1,423 (which includes Muskoka Home Child Care Agency, centre-based care, and before and after school programming).
Quality child care programs have been shown to shape all areas of development during a child's most critical period of brain development. They also provide families with an opportunity to pursue employment, education or training and provides benefits to the broader economy.
For further information about the centre and how to register for a space please contact Anya Wingfield, Operator of Stepping Stones Early Learning Academy at (705) 955-7669.
Funding for this community-based capital project was provided by the Province of Ontario.
