As community builders, Beaverbrook is thrilled to announce the development of the Beaverbrook Wellness Centre in partnership with Parkland School Division, City of Spruce Grove, Province of Alberta and the YMCA of Northern Alberta. The facility represents a collaborative and successful partnership with two levels of government: a progressive school division and a like-minded, mission-based, not-for-profit charity, which will enchance the lives of Spruce Grove residents and reduce the waiting time for working families looking for child care. The Beaverbrook Wellness Centre will provide families in Spruce Grove with access to licensed and accredited child care and support services within walking distance of their homes with the convenience of being adjacent to the new K–9 Prescott Learning Centre located in Beaverbrook’s Prescott neighbouhood. What is unique about this facility is that it is being built on land owned by the City of Spruce Grove, next to a new school and providing accredited child care and support services through the YMCA, a second link-minded tenant and the City of Spruce Grove FCSS.
The YMCA of Northern Alberta is one of the largest and most trusted providers of licensed not-for-profit child care in Western Canada. Today the YMCA operates 67 Child Cares Programs in the Edmonton, Wood Buffolo and Grande Prairie regions. Each week over 3,000 children attend YMCA of Northern Alberta Child Care.
The YMCA Beaverbrook Child Care will serve 166 children in the community providing families with immediate access to much needed child care. The 10,700 sq. ft. YMCA facility will include dedicated space for infant, pre-school, pre-kinder and after school activity rooms for K–6 children. Located at the rear of the Wellness Centre will be a dedicated walkway that is a direct link to the Prescott K–9 Learning Centre which provides an immediate and safe passage for children attending the Wellness Centre."
