The Upper Canada District School Board is receiving funding from the Ministry of Education to construction early year education projects.
The school board will be receiving over $7 million and board Chair Jeff McMillan says they are thrilled by the news of having five new capital projects and two additions to be built. The board will receive around $7.7 million dollars for projects at Nationview Public School, Kemptville Public School, Rockland Public School, Russell Public School and the new South Brockville Public School, which is to be constructed.
Nationview will get 10 infant and 24 preschool spaces while Kemptville will have 10 infant, 15 toddler and 24 pre school to go on top of funding for an addition. The forthcoming South Brockville Public School will have 10 infant spaces, 30 toddler spaces and 24 preschool spaces built with the money.
School Board Director Of Education Stephen Silwa says he can only imagine how families with young children will value these recent developments.
