Services to be offered by Oceanside Building Learning Together

Families in the Parksville Qualicum Beach region now have two new child care programs to choose from.

The Oceanside Building Learning Together has opened up two new child care services, the Errington After School Child Care Program and the Arrowview Kids Club.

OBLT manager Judi Malcolm said they are excited to embark on this new adventure in child care.

“Because we strongly support and believe in quality affordable child care, we took the opportunity to partner with School District 69 to build and provide new, not for profit child care spaces for the (Parksville Qualicum Beach) area,” said Malcolm. “We plan on offering a broad range of opportunities that include positive connections, active outdoor play, and hopefully a lot of fun.
