Beauval and Prince Albert will see a fraction of new child care spaces announced today by the province. Beauval will get nine and Prince Albert will get five.

Regina will get 35, while Saskatoon is getting the bulk of the new spaces released Wednesday.

“We are very pleased child care supports will be more accessible to communities across the province,” Minister of Education Gordon Wyant said in a press release. “This investment provides more child care options to accommodate the diverse needs of Saskatchewan families.”

In all 447 spaces were announced. Both the Sask. and federal governments have committed to developing more than 2500 child care spaces over three years.

Nearly 600 spaces were allocated to communities earlier this spring.
