News Flash: Construction Has Begun on the New Childcare Centre at Montecito

We are fortunate to have a new childcare facility for toddlers being added to the Montecito School property. The City of Burnaby has partnered with the Burnaby Board of Education to go ahead with this initiative.

The construction company hired to work on this project has set up a fence around the childcare site. For those of you who have lived in this community for a while, the approved site is where the three previous portables used to be located. Construction workers will start by building a retaining wall, creating a parking lot for the childcare centre and pouring the foundation for the modular that is being built off-site and will be moved on-site, probably sometime this coming spring. After the modular is moved on-site, they will be putting up a permanent fence and building a playground. The childcare centre will be totally self-contained at the completion of the project.

Some of you have been asking when the childcare centre will be opening. We have not been given a timeline yet. Stay tuned! All registrations will happen through the childcare centre once we know who is running the facility, NOT the school. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
