“Bruce County, as a Service System Manager, takes pride in ensuring that the Licensed Child Care and Early Years System is collaborative, responsive, and accountable in meeting the current and long term needs of families across the County,” said Bruce County Warden Chris Peabody. “We are excited to work with child care providers like Little Cubs Learning Centre to support families in receiving high quality, affordable, inclusive, and accessible licensed child care options.”

“This new Child Care Program expands licensed child care options for families in Saugeen Shores and provides early years programs and services that help build a foundation for all future learning, behaviour, and health,” added Saugeen Shores Mayor Luke Charbonneau. “Expanded access to licensed, quality child care services will also positively impact our local economy, encourage workforce participation, and reduce poverty for low-income families. We are excited to have this new licensed child care facility to support the young families of our growing community.”
