Liberty Village is growing quickly, and as more families are choosing to stay and raise their children downtown, the City needs to ensure services are reflective of the communities they serve.

In my role as Councillor, I have been working hard to find appropriate spaces to build the services Liberty Village needs – like childcare facilities, schools, and parks.

I am excited to announce that my office, working with City Planning and Children’s Services, have confirmed that the first City-owned childcare facility in Liberty Village will be built at 19 Western Battery Road.

I want to thank the developer of the site, CentreCourt, who showed a willingness to compromise and negotiate an agreement to add this important piece of infrastructure to their plans. The ability to negotiate this community benefit would not have been possible without the overwhelming support of the residents of Liberty Village, many of who are excited to see this important addition to the neighbourhood.

Construction on the site is underway and is anticipated to be complete in 2020.

More details about registration for childcare will be available once we get closer to the opening date and the City selects a not-for-profit operator, which will help keep fees low.

If you would like more information about this project, please contact Stephanie Nakitsas in my office at stephanie.nakitsas@toronto.ca, or 416 392 4009.
