Thursday, August 31, 2006 The Cul De Sac Day Care Centre Extension and Grounds Rehabilitation Project will on completion provide an additional 40 places to infants in the community of Cul De Sac and environs bringing the centre's overall capacity to 80.

Programme Manager of the Basic Needs Trust Fund Clive Hippolyte said improvement works totalling $25,000.00 is being undertaken on the existing building while the new extension will cost almost two hundred thousand dollars.

In addition to the BNTF funding, there's funding from LUCELEC who has done drainage works and will also assist with the erection of the fencing. WIZO which is a commercial entity just outside the centre has also donated some fence material to be incorporated in the facility, so you have corporate citizens as well as the BNTF through the Government of Saint Lucia and the CDB expending funding on that centre.

As a result of the ongoing project there may be a special arrangement put in place to accommodate the day care's operations in keeping with the resumption of school.

We're looking to facilitate a partial occupation of the school, however we've had a meeting with the Ministry of Transformation Day Care Unit as well as operators of the school and the decision is that they will facilitate the operation of school at an alternate location until such time.

The Cul De Sac Day Care Centre Extension and Grounds Rehabilitation Project should be delivered to the community towards the end of September.
