Ontario’s Ministry of Education has announced funding for a new childcare centre in London.

Alongside the $7.2-million being invested in Eagle Heights Public School London will see an additional $2.7-million to be invested in a childcare centre.

The project is a collaboration between the province and the London District Catholic School Board (LDCSB).

“Investing in infrastructure improvements and new school buildings is an investment in our students and their future,” Vince Romeo, the LDCSB Director of Education said of the funding.

The location of the building itself is yet to be acquired, but in a statement, the ministry said there will be 88 child care spaces created.

The centre is expected to include one infant room, two toddler rooms, and two preschool rooms.
