Two dozen new licensed child care spaces are coming to La Broquerie as part of a three-year, $23 million agreement signed in February by the federal and provincial governments.

Eight infant and 16 preschool spaces will be added to La Garderie Les P’tits Brisous Inc., located in Saint Joachim School.

Director Andree Remillard said an expansion is planned to house the new spaces, pending DSFM approval.

The early learning centre, which applied for capital funding last May, currently offers eight infant, 44 preschool, and 30 school-age spaces, Remillard said.

Families Minister Scott Fielding announced the location of 780 new early learning and child care spaces, and 20 associated capital projects, last Friday.

A similar announcement in March revealed the first 620 spaces secured by Manitoba under its Early Learning and Child Care Agreement with Ottawa.

A release from the province said the latest batch of funding was directed toward communities where access to affordable child care has been challenging and considered lower-income, lone-parent or French-language families or those living in underserved areas.
