New Day­care spots

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Vic­to­ria Vanier

OnMon­day, Premier Pauline Marois and the Min­is­ter of the Fam­ily, Ni­cole Leger, an­nounced the cre­ation of 28,000 new $7 a day day­care spots be­tween now and the end of 2016. This will be done in two phases. First, a green light has been given to cre­ate 13,000 places im­me­di­ately from projects ap­plied for in 2011 and rec­om­mended by the re­gional com­mit­tees. In the sec­ond phase, the gov­ern­ment will launch a new call for projects to cre­ate 15,000 more spa­ces. These re­quests will have to be made to the gov­ern­ment be­fore the end of June 2013. The 22 re­gional con­sul­ta­tive com­mit­tees will an­a­lyse those projects and rec­om­mend those that cor­re­spond most with the needs of the pop­u­la­tion. Ac­cord­ing to the gov­ern­ment, the 28,000 new spa­ces will be cre­ated within four years.

In the Estrie re­gion, 581 new spa­ces have been cre­ated: 320 in Sher­brooke; 99 in Ma­gog; 50 in Coat­i­cook; 60 in St. De­nis de Brompton; 21 in St. Ro­main; 13 in La Pa­trie; 13 in East An­gus; and 5 in As­cot Cor­ner.
