Daycare operating grant gets its first increase in a decade

‘This is long overdue’

 
EXCERPTS
The Yukon government is increasing the amount of the direct operating grant given to licensed daycares and day home operators for the first time in a decade.
For the first time, rural daycares and day homes will also get extra cash beyond what is given to facilities in Whitehorse.
That’s part of a new bilateral agreement signed this morning between Yukon and the federal government.
The territory is getting $7.3 million over three years until March 2020 to improve early learning and child care.
