The Government of BC has announced funding for future daycare spaces at Anne Roberts Young Elementary School! School District 60 will receive $1 Million dollars to support 61 future spaces. SD60 will partner with Northern Health and the daycare facility included in the school will be operated by the YMCA of Northern British Columbia.
