The District of Sicamous Staff & Council are very happy to announce that the District has been awarded a grant from the Province of British Columbia through the Community Child Care Space Creation program in the amount of $848,000 towards the establishment of a Community Daycare in Sicamous. The funds will go towards the purchase of 502 Cedar Street, and renovations of the building to upgrade the space to a daycare centre for children ages 3-5 years old.

The facility will be called the Sicamous Play More Centre and will be managed by a non-profit society yet to be established. Once renovations are complete and a society is formed, more information will be released on how residents may register their children for care at the Sicamous Play More Centre.
