Childcare program would be missed
My husband and I were sorry to learn that the child-care program at the Creemore public school will be terminated at the end of the school year.
The Nottawasaga & Creemore Kid’s Club runs in the morning and afternoon and welcomes any child from kindergarten age up to Grade 6.
It is run by York Professional Care & Education (www.ypce.com), a private, non-profit agency based in York Region and Simcoe County.
The organizers say they are ending the program because they struggle with low attendance and retaining staff. They need something like 10-12 kids for viability and have not yet met this milestone.
Our son enjoys his time there with the other kids and the fun teachers who keep them busy indoors and outdoors, using the school’s classroom and play facilities.
If you were going to sign up your child for next year, please call York Professional at 905-841-1314 and let them know. Maybe they will reinstate the program.
On the other hand, there may be an opportunity here for an enterprising person who wants to offer before and after care based at the school, or can offer school drop-off and pick-up.
It appears that several families will be looking for a consistent, caring playgroup in September.
