Report Calls For Day Care Closure

Sarnia’s Mayor says it would be the biggest layoff by the County of Lambton in its history.

A report going to Lambton County Council’s standing committees next Wednesday calls for the closure of Coronation Park Day Nursery in Sarnia this September.

The building would be closed and sold and 40 staff members would be impacted.

Mayor Mike Bradley has served notice of motion for the May 8 County Council meeting that no decision is to be made on the future of the centre until a special public input meeting is held and a process for public input is put in place.

The Oak Avenue centre provides licensed day care for nearly 160 children.
