Families in Elkford rejoice

Child care options in Elkford expand with 30 new full-time licensed child care spaces.

2 minute read

What do you do with an empty, 520-square-metre municipal building? Liven it up with children! That’s what the District of Elkford has done, by renovating its old hall to become the Elkford Childcare Centre and Community Hub. In addition to creating a multipurpose workspace for small businesses and non-profits, the project has added 30 full-time licensed child care spaces, overseen by the Elkford Women’s Task Force Society. Projects like this help communities meet families’ needs for quality, affordable child care; this positively affects the well-being of the families themselves, enables parents to work and helps Basin businesses attract and retain employees. And in Elkford, it adds child care options that are greatly needed.
