Options Community Services and the Surrey School District are pleased to announce that we have come to an agreement regarding the joint operation of the Growing Together Program at Guildford Park Secondary. Options Community Services will remain in its current location and continue to provide childcare and wrap-around services for young parents finishing their high school education until July 2020.
“The most important thing for us was providing certainty, as soon as we could, to Growing Together students as well as community families who are taking part in the provincial $10/Day Pilot Program about their access to childcare in the fall. We have achieved that.” says Christine Mohr, Options CEO. “We will continue our search for a new location and we are confident that we will be able to move without disrupting childcare and services to those who count on us.”
“Our board’s priority is supporting our young mothers who are students of the Surrey School District as they work towards graduation and beyond,” says Surrey Board of Education chairwoman Laurie Larsen. “Trustees are pleased to be able to move forward with that support in an effective manner and continue to ensure district resources are focused on our students.”
