After 40 years of providing child care in the community, the Lacombe Daycare is closing its doors. Countless children and families have benefited from their care.

Over the years, like many non-profit organizations, there have been both times of triumph and challenge. However, the daycare has reached a point where it is no longer able to sustain operations reduced enrolment, increased competition and the anticipated life-expectancy of the current facility are the contributing factors.

On Nov. 30th the members of the Lacombe Daycare Society voted to dissolve the Society. A presentation was given to all interested members of the Society outlining the historical and current status of the daycare. A question and answer period followed, leading to the unanimous decision to dissolve and effectively close the daycare at the end of the year.

“It’s been a privilege to support families and be part of nurturing young children in our community,” said Shelley Redfern, president of the Lacombe Daycare Society. “The early years are the most critical period in a child’s development.”

The Lacombe Daycare Society wishes to thank the parents, staff and all the children who have made the daycare an important public service and a fixture in our community for so long. We would like to acknowledge and thank the City of Lacombe, board members past and present and the many generous donors who have supported the Lacombe Daycare over the years.

The last day of childcare offered at the Lacombe Daycare will be Dec. 23rd.

Any questions regarding the closure of the daycare or the dissolution of the Society can be directed to the executive director of the Lacombe Daycare at 403-782-3477.
