Saanich Neighbourhood Place is excited to have been the recipient of a $1.5 M ‘New Spaces’ grant to continue our project to create 49 new childcare spaces in Saanich. The new facility will welcome children 1-5 years in full-day licensed child care, and include programs and services for the whole family. Located behind Pearkes Rec. Centre, the new facility will include a large natural playground – ‘The Little Woods Natural Playspace’ -, a licensed kitchen and space for the community to use as well as three separate childcare spaces. We hope to begin construction in mid-2020, with an opening day anticipated in 2021.
