The Amherst Daycare Centre
A Brief History of the Amherst Day Care Centre
In order to provide the children with indoor and outdoor climbing equipment the Centre turned to Katimavik. In 1984 Katimavik came and built the needed equipment and made some minor repairs. The United Way supported some of the operating expenses until 1990. It was at this time that the Centre was able to meet its own financial needs. The 50 subsidized spaces were being used to capacity. This helped to brighten the future of the Centre. The operating funds are now drawn only from the parent fees.
In May, 2000, with the approval of the Registrar of Joint Stocks, The Amherst Day Care Centre changed its name to “Bright Beginnings Child Care Centre”. The Centre will continue its mandate to meet the ever growing child care needs of the community.
