DAWSON CREEK, BC – School District 59 is creating 74 child care spaces in Dawson Creek and Tumbler Ridge to provide support for families with young children. The District has secured capital funding through the ChildCareBC New Spaces Fund.

"Dawson Creek and Tumbler Ridge families will benefit from more high-quality new child care spaces in their growing communities,” said Mitzi Dean, B.C.’s Minister of State for Child Care. “Improving access to child care spaces gives kids the best possible start and supports parents to plan a brighter future for their families.”

Design is underway for 12 spaces each in Dawson Creek and Tumbler Ridge for children under 36 months as well as 25 spaces in each of the two communities for children aged 36 months to school age.
