Bennetto Location Announcement

Dearest Jamesville and Jamesville Bennetto Families,

This year we celebrate serving the Jamesville neighbourhood for 30 years! Our inception began when a group of parishioners and leadership from the church felt there was a need in the community for child care that should be met. Many happy and sad times have been seen here through the years with only 3 children enrolled in the child care program for the longest time. One of which is a current staff with her own children enrolled in our programs.

I am so happy to be a part of this community and am thrilled to inform you that we have a very exciting opportunity that we will be embarking on in the fall of this year. We will be opening a brand new child care wing located in Bennetto school. We will be a licensed program that will be able to accommodate 10 infants, 15 toddlers and 24 preschoolers. We will continue to operate our School Age programs there as well. Right now we have 26 kindercare children and 45 school age children enrolled at Bennetto School with the capacity to take more if necessary.

With this exciting opportunity comes some sad news, because of the need to run the program at Bennetto, we will be closing our current site at 252 James Street North. The reason for this is because there is not enough need or resources in the community to operate both facilities. We know that staff and families alike share many happy memories here that will be celebrated and cherished each year as we foster new memories at a new location.

I know that you will have many questions about our transition and I want you to know that we will work with each of you to ensure that your child care needs are being met. I don’t anticipate having too much difficulty placing families with the transition as the fall is typically a time of change as many children move up to a new group and our preschoolers graduate to kindergarten.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to stop in my office, send me a message on sandbox or give me a call.

Kind Regards,

Lisa Fulsom
