The Fernie Child Care Society was set up to address the shortage of licensed, accessible, quality child care in Fernie and the surrounding area. The Fernie Child Care Centre will provide day care services on a part time or full time basis for 30 children.
The City of Fernie is a rapidly changing community with a large number of children needing quality child care. The City of Fernie is undergoing transition and residents face increasing living costs. The lack of available child care and the number of children needing quality child care is on the increase. Realizing this need, a few individuals created the awareness in the community, held an initial meeting which was extremely well attended and from there the group has formed a board of directors and meets every week. The process is long and will not happen over night; grant applications, sponsorship proposals, fundraising efforts, the legalities of creating a non-profit society, finding a location, licensing and finding qualified, licensed child care providers are just some of the steps to be taken.
Through the hard work and dedication of the team of people involved, through the support of The City of Fernie and efforts of community members who are donating their time, skills and services, this initiative will be achieved and the community will be able to proudly say that it was achieved by the willingness and support of the community.
