The Saskatchewan Party government announced Monday where it plans to allocate 500 new child care spaces. The 2011-12 budget, unveiled in March, included $2.1 million to develop new day care spots in communities across Saskatchewan.

The province says 110 of the new spaces will be allocated to serve University of Saskatchewan students. The Saskatoon Tribal Council Early Learning Centre will also be expanded to accommodate 16 more children whose parents are students at Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technologies.


The other child care spaces will be distributed as follows:

Wynyard - up to 25 new spots

Prince Albert - 31 new spots at St. Anne's School

Spiritwood - up to 25 new spots

Swift Current - up to 50 new spots at Trailview Alliance Church

The tally adds up to potentially 513 new liensed child care spaces in the province.
