A new children’s resource centre at 519 Selkirk Avenue is nearing completion for its grand opening on May 31.

The Urban Circle Training Centre is a new and distinctive early learning and child-care centre that will offer 52 new child-care spaces providing students and community members a special place for children to thrive and grow.

Employees from RBC will be on site today for a day-long push to get the centre ready. Volunteers, along with youth aboriginal dancers, will be assisting with construction, painting, yard work and landscaping including the planting of a special garden with healing herbs.

RBC’s involvement is part of their partnership with the Makoonsag Intergenerational Children’s Centre for a United Way Day of Caring.
