Childcare Studios

㽶ֱ School District applied to the Ministry of Children and Family Development to create new childcare spaces on a number of Greater Victoria School District properties. The School District was successful in its applications and received funding for 17 school locations.

Each school location has been approved for new before and after school childcare spots and either new preschool or full-time childcare spots for various ages. All childcare and before and after care spots will be open to the school population first. If all childcare and before and after school care spots are not filled by the school population they will be open to the surrounding community.
