Kwantlen Polytechnic University will be developing a new childcare facility at its Surrey campus with funding from Métis Nation British Columbia (MNBC). The facility will provide 36 infant-toddler spaces and 25 spaces for children aged two-and-a-half to kindergarten, with Métis children receiving priority access to some spaces. KPU students and employees will be able to access the childcare spaces, which will ensure they have childcare while they are working and learning. KPU has also partnered with Capilano University and MNBC to offer early childhood education (ECE) programming at the Surrey campus. The new childcare facility will also provide ECE students with practicum placement opportunities.
