Purpose Society to do Qayqayt child care

The Lower Mainland Purpose Society will be the child care operator in the new Qayqayt Elementary School's Neighbourhood Learning Centre (NLC).

The society, which already provides programs in partnership with the New Westminster school district, was chosen in a bid process.

Although the school is expected to open in September, NLC services, including the child care faclity, aren't scheduled to be opened until January 2015. Qayqayt's NLC will also include before and after school care provided by Westminster Children's After School Society, which currently provides the service at John Robson elementary where most of Qayqayt's students will come from.
