Young parent program closing

Shuswap Day Society is sad to announce that as of June 30, the Shuswap Young Parent Program located at 2600 20th Street NE will close.

The society has had to make the difficult decision to close the program due to ongoing low enrolment and the financial strain the program was experiencing each year.

The society would like to acknowledge School District #83 for their support over the past 14 years and for allowing us to use their property and house for the program.

“The society is very pleased that many young parents, who participated in the program,  have graduated and developed positive parenting skills.   We’ve had many positive success stories and  we are proud to have supported so many young parents,” says Karen Bubola, general manager.

The society will be selling toys, equipment and furnishings from the day care centre. A large garage sale will be  held in July. (exact date to be determined)

Please contact Shuswap Day Care @ 250-832-6192 for more information.
