KidZone opened their new toddler program at Pope John Paul II school in Kenora yesterday.
Kelly Williams is the Senior Director of Children's Services and she spoke about the importance of their partnership with the school.
"I think that it's really nice now that early childhood is seen as part of the continuum of education for children. We're not babysitting children, we're part of educating and teaching the children in those early years. That's a great partnership, and I think being inside the schools has promoted that for families," she said.
In 2018, the Kenora Catholic District School Board received $403,333 from the Ministry of Education to work in partnership with the Kenora Association
for Community Living to retrofit Pope John Paul II School to accommodate the expansion of the Toddler Program at KidZone PJP II Child Care Centre.
