Memphremagog CLD gives grant to new daycare
The Memphremagog CLD has given a grant of $40,000 to the CPE l’Univers des petits Memphremagog, from their Fonds de developpement et de consoloditation des entreprises d’economie sociale (FDCEES). Expected to open in April of this year, the new daycare will be located on Didace Street, in Magog. It will provide 73 places for children from 0 to 5 years of age.
Besides its educational mission, the CPE hopes to focus on the cognitive and motor development of children with special game equipment, both inside and outdoors. The CLD grant will be used to buy this equipment and to help with the start-up. The project represents an investment of more than $1.5 million in the region and will create twenty jobs.
