Construction of a new daycare centre is underway in Ste. Agathe with plans for the facility to be fully operational by January, 2013.
“This is very important to our growing community,” said Councillor Jeannot Robert, “and would not have happened without Patrick Saurette, Le Coin Magique and the school fundraising committee.”
In total, the volunteers raised nearly $200,000 including a $25,000 kick-start donation from Alissa Doan and the Ste. Agathe organizers who claimed victory, last summer, in the province-wide Manitobaville competition. The Province of Manitoba also contributed with the DSFM school division providing excellent cooperation.
Applications are now being accepted from families wishing to place a child in the day care centre which will include spots for eight infants, and 24 pre-schoolers. Contact: Ecole Ste. Agathe at 204-882-2275.
