Le Jardin Closes

January 24, 2014

Sadly, after seven years of operation, the members of the Le Jardin Co-operative have decided to close the daycare.  Following the December announcement by the Ontario Government that they plan to change the rules surrounding unlicensed daycares, a review of the current and proposed legislation revealed that the co-operative model upon which Le Jardin was founded would not be viable in our current space.  The current members of Le Jardin would like to thank all of the past members for their effort and dedication to making the Le Jardin an enriching experience for all the children.  Most of all, we thank our ECE, Lana, for her caring, guidance, and love that she gave every child and parent.
