Mem­phrem­a­gog CLD gives grant to new day­care

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

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.
