Future Childcare Centre


Dear Parents/Guardians:

We would like to share with you some exciting news for our school community.

The Burnaby Board of Education is excited to partner with the City of Burnaby on the delivery of four full-time childcare facilities to support families with children ages 2.5 to 5 years old. A feasibility study approved in October has recommended that the childcare facilities be located on the grounds of – Capitol Hill Elementary, Montecito Elementary, Cascade Heights Elementary and Stride Avenue Community School.

There will be some site preparation work taking place during the summer of 2018. The facilities themselves will be built offsite and moved in when they are ready. The childcare site at Stride will be located alongside the 14th Avenue parking lot, where the old KRIB portable used to sit.

It is presently unknown when the childcare centre will be ready for occupancy but we will be keeping you apprised of this and other information pertaining to the childcare centre as the project moves forward.

We look forward to welcoming future Stride Avenue Community School students and their families into our school community.
