The provincial government has announced money for another 200 licensed child care spaces in Saskatchewan. It's part of the government's four-year plan to create 1,200 new spaces.

Premier Lorne Calvert says $600,000 will be allocated for the 200 new spaces. The program is being paid for by the federal and provincial governments. In 2003, the first year of the program, 500 spaces were created and about half of them are subsidized.

Calvert says the province will have about 8,100 licensed child care spaces by the end of March 2005.
