Beginning in February, the YMCA of Northern BC will offer child care services in Fort St. James.
The YMCA and Nechako Valley Community Services Society (NVCSS) have partnered to meet the demands in Fort
St. James at 349 Stuart Drive West.
"We are pleased to be partnering with the YMCA, who will bring significant expertise and experience in early childhood services to Fort St. James," said Tyrell Arnold, executive director of NVCSS.
The YMCA will operate the child care centre, which offers eight spaces for infants and toddlers and 20 spaces for three to five-year-olds.
"We believe that every child and every community deserves access to quality child care," said Lynette Mikalishen, director of child care services.
"We are so excited to be able to partner to address this need in Fort St. James."
The child care services will follow the YMCA's Playing to Learn curriculum and YMCA Healthy Child Development to encourage early learning and build community connections while promoting healthy, active living.
