The city is seeking proposals from qualified consultants to help provide analysis of the current childcare programming needs and gaps in available childcare facilities in Kimberley. As Kimberley’s population continues to grow, many of the young families moving to the area are in need of some form of childcare. We are working to understand those needs and get a clear picture of the options that are currently available. The analysis will also provide an action plan for moving forward. The city looks forward to sharing the results with the community upon completion of the project.
Proposals are being accepted up to 4 p.m. on August 12 at City Hall. The full proposal can be found here.
Registration will open on August 15 for Fall Red Cross Swim Lessons and After School Programs. Don’t forget we have Saturday morning lessons too! For registration and details call 250-427-2983 or visit www.kimberley.ca and follow the link to Aquatic Centre for more info.
