The Near North District School Board has announced the approval of a 2.7 million dollar expansion for Woodland Public School. The second phase of the capital project is the construction of an addition for child care, a four room facility, which includes an infant room, a toddler room, and two preschool rooms. This newly constructed addition will be located at the north-east corner of the school property. The future Woodland Early Learning and Child Care Centre will provide high quality child care for the Woodland Public School community from infancy to 12 years.

In addition to the current Before and After School Program, four, full day, early learning child care classrooms will be built with 10 infant spaces, 15 toddler spaces and 32 preschool spaces. The new facility will include an enclosed entrance and exterior play space.

Board staff are engaged in design consultation with Mitchell Jensen Architects, alongside valued partners from the District of Nipissing Social Services Administration Board and the YMCA of Northeastern Ontario. It’s anticipated the project will be tendered within the next few weeks with exterior site work expected to begin this summer. Construction of the facility will continue throughout the school year. Officials say the safety of students, staff, and the broader community will remain a top priority throughout the duration of this project.
