Child Care Centres: Up to $500,000 available in grants until September 30th

The opportunity for active play — especially outdoors, is an essential element of any child care centre. Having fun while learning in a safe play area just got easier thanks to the Play! Grant Program, which offers up to $500,000 in grants to child care centres in Manitoba, Ontario, NWT, Nunavut and the Maritimes. 

On now until September 30th, Play! by Crozier, a leader in playgrounds, splash pads, sports goals and site amenities, will match up to 33% on every dollar of your allotted playground budget to ensure you get the perfect play space for your child care centre. The increased funds can then be used towards the purchase of Play!’s fun and inclusive play products.

Since the Play! Grant Program can be used in conjunction with any other provincial or government grant, some child care centres have been able to triple their original allotted funds and built the daycare of their dreams.

“We recognize that available funds can be limited in child care centres, so we are extending this grant program offer to help stretch budget dollars and give children an exciting adventure on the playground,” said Play! by Crozier Sales Associate Eric Nadeau. “We hope this funding goes a long way to encouraging healthy, active and safe play.”
