Worries mount for private, non-profit childcare centres ahead of N.S. pre-primary rollout

 
EXCERPTS
As Nova Scotia continues to move towards the anticipated pre-primary rollout, many private and non-profit child care program providers are feeling on edge.
"They have children currently enrolled in their programs, the [school] board is telling parents not to withdraw their children on the chance that the program will not start on its intended date," said Pam Streeter, a member of the Private Licensed Administrators Association.
"It really puts them at a huge disadvantage to budget and plan for the coming year."
