Glen Orchard School child care centre opens
On Friday, representatives from Trillium Lakelands District School Board were joined by MPP Graydon Smith, the Mayor of Bracebridge and Deputy District Chair Rick Maloney, as well as representatives from the District of Muskoka and Muskoka Lakes Preschool for a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new child care centre at Glen Orchard Public School.
The new facility will offer 36 new spaces for toddler to preschool aged children, which is in addition to the 20 spaces currently being operated by Muskoka Lakes Preschool.
This project was initially approved by the Ministry of Education in 2018 but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it wasn’t until July 2022 that the renovation began. Working within the footprint of the school, the renovation transformed some classrooms into child care spaces.
