More child care for frontline workers is now available with the announcement that a further emergency child care centre – the YMCA Mother St. Bride Centre – is now open for frontline workers.
This ensures that frontline health care workers – doctors, nurses and paramedics, firefighters, police, and correctional officers – will be able to access safe, local emergency child care says Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli.
Ontario is exempting certain childcare centres from closure, in order to support nurses, doctors, and frontline care workers across the province.
The YMCA Mother St. Bride Centre joins the YMCA Woodland Early Learning and Child Care Centre in North Bay, and Fairview Early Learning and Child Care Centre in Powassan, as available centres.
“Our frontline workers will have access to safe, local child care centres, making it easier for health care and other frontline workers to do their jobs,” said Fedeli.
