uAlberta enters partnership for private day care

March 2, 2009

The University of Alberta has signed an agreement with Kids & Company, an Ontario-based day-care provider, to ensure that university employees would receive priority for spots at a 140-space centre to open in downtown Edmonton in April. 5 non-profit child-care centres already affiliated with the university say they weren't consulted in the new partnership, leaving some to wonder about uAlberta's commitment to the non-profit operations. A university official says the agreement will not affect the 5 centres. Edmonton Journal
