Dear Liberty Village neighbours,

I am writing to obtain your feedback about an urgent and possibly exciting opportunity for a new childcare centre in Liberty Village. Just last week, I spoke to staff in the Children’s Services division about the demand for childcare spaces in the area and found out that the City has money available to help create a new childcare centre in Liberty Village.
