The Bonnyville & District Daycare has been approved by the Minister of Children’s Services to open essential childcare services for essential workers in our community. This childcare is only available to parents working in emergency services, providing medical treatment and select essential workers. The Bonnyville & District Daycare Society Board approved moving forward with this important support service at their meeting on April 29th. We expect to open on May 4th.
The province has established stringent standards to enhance the safety of the childcare workers, the children and the families. This includes a maximum capacity of 10 per room and 30 persons present in the facility. Additional sanitation will be required beyond normal daycare standards. Families will be required to provide lunches and snacks for their children to further reduce risk. These and other measures will be implemented to reduce the risk.

Please note that while this essential childcare is operational the Bonnyville & District F.C.S.S. will be temporarily relocated to the Bonnyville Youth Centre adjacent to the Parent Child Centre.
