The Saskatchewan government has announced how it will divvy up 500 new child care spaces in 15 communities across the province.

The $6 million in funding will be divided among Regina, Carlyle, Dalmeny, Grenfell, Moose Jaw, Oxbow, Prince Albert, Tisdale, Saskatoon, Shellbrook, Stony Rapids, Swift Current, Qu'Appelle, Watson and Yorkton.

Education Minister Donna Harpauer says with this latest spending, the Saskatchewan Party government will have increased the number of child care spaces by 42 per cent since taking power.

The funding will bring the total number of child care spaces in the province to 13,240.
