Selkirk celebrates opening of new childcare centre on Silver King Campus

November 11, 2021
Selkirk College has officially opened a new childcare centre on its Silver King Campus which is run by Kootenay Kids Society. The centre, which received $1.2M from the Government of British Columbia and $300K from Columbia Basin Trust, provides 24 childcare spaces. Eight of these have been set aside for Selkirk students, while the rest will be available to the general community through the Kootenay Kids Society. “Selkirk College’s fundamental mission is accessible, affordable post-secondary education and this addition to the Silver King Campus is an important piece,” said Selkirk President Angus Graeme. “With more availability of licensed child care, parents who face barriers to access now have additional options.” Selkirk | Nelson (BC)
