More people will have access to local child care when Capilano University’s (CapU) new purpose-built Centre for Childhood Studies opens with expanded on-site child care and learning spaces for students at the School of Education & Childhood Studies. Slated to open in 2024, this facility will have a total of 143 childcare spaces, more than doubling the existing amounts.
The spots will be open to students, employees and community members.
This centre will be spread over two stories, and will be approximately 7,000 square metres (23,000 square feet). The centre will work with the CapU’s early childhood educators (ECEs) program. ECE students will be able to get on-the-job training by working on-site at their campus, and parents will have access to quality childcare in a state-of-the-art and purpose built building.
This is a great development that is being brought forward in our community. I am proud that this government has made families a priority!
