Ministry closes local Childcare Centre along with others in London

Saugeen Shores Child Care Centre, located on Goderich Street in Port Elgin opened in 2019 and, this week, was immediately closed through an order by the Ministry of Education and that was posted on all entrances.

The closure left parents scrambling as their children were not allowed to return for after-school care and others had to immediately pick up their children from the facility.

The local care centre joined two others in London (ON) that were also closed with the same notices posted that cite a “Protection Order”, which immediately stops child care being provided.

Protection Orders, which result in the immediate suspension of operations, are issued to ensure the safety and protection of the children in care.  Reasons for the closure are as yet unknown.
