More care for pre-school age children was in the works for Sicamous.
The District of Sicamous announced it has received a provincial government grant applied for through the Community Child Care Space Creation program. The grant, which totals $848,000, will go towards the purchase of 502 Cedar St., which is currently in use by the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Renovations of the space will also be covered by the grant. Once upgraded, the space will be a daycare for children ages 3 to 5.
The new facility will be called the Sicamous Play More Centre and it will be managed by a non-profit society that is yet to be established.
