Following a comprehensive operational review of the City of Cornwall’s Child Care Division, the City has made the decision to close Richelieu Day Care Centre.
The Centre will be closed effective June 30, 2021.
“Closing the Centre will allow us to redeploy resources to meet other needs in our community,” said Mellissa Morgan, Manager of Social & Housing Services. “Both staff and funding dollars will be redistributed to enhance childcare services in Cornwall and SD&G. As the Service System manager, we are committed to supporting existing families enrolled at Richelieu Day Care Centre with a smooth transition to other childcare providers.”
The families in our community are well supported by existing not for profit childcare operators who have sufficient capacity to serve the community’s needs.
Cornwall and SD&G residents seeking childcare services can call 613-930-2787 ext. 3315.
