Saltcoats and District Daycare


Saltcoats and District Day Care

In 2005 in a small busy community, with many young families, and conversations around, Town

Council was approached with the idea of a definite need for a children’s day care center in our community.

This was all very real and exciting; with one high factor though, a "building" to make this happen. We didn’t let this stop us. Yorkton Housing Authority owned several units

A board was put into place with Town Council and serval meetings were held. A presentation was put forth to the Saltcoats Housing Authority and Saltcoats Social Board, and it all became real when the Town of Saltcoats purchased this parcel of land for $50,000 for a day care center.

Years of work began. Plans were put into place with the generous help and guidance from Yellowhead REDA. Grants were applied for, and many countless hours of community involvement and volunteer hands, meetings, construction, work bees and government funding. The Saltcoats Daycare is a Early Years Center that became operational in June 2008. It operates out of a facility close to the elementary school and is staffed with a great team of enthusiastic, qualified and caring individuals.

The children are offered 3 nutritional meals that follow the Canadian Food Guide. We also have outdoor time (weather permitting) throughout the day in our spacious backyard or within our beautiful community. The Programming is based on the interest of the children and often follows the play and exploration guide.

The Daycare is open Monday to Friday 6 am to 6 pm. Feel free to phone call 306-744-2213 or drop in for more information.

in our community with some vacant units at that time. There was a perfect parcel of land for a day care to happen, close to rinks, and the school.
