€3m investment in new child-care facilities in Brussels
The VGC has announced it will spend the money on creating two new crèches in the capital and extending an existing facility
The day-care centre in Elsene will be in Kerckxstraat, where €2.4 million will be spent on a new facility to be ready in three years. In Sint-Joost, a house will be converted by the end of this year.
The extension to the Elmer-Noord crèche near North Station in Schaarbeek will take over an adjoining building and be available by mid-2019.
The number of places made available by the latest investment is not yet certain, Debaets said. “That will only be clear once the new buildings are finished and Kind & Gezin have licensed the new crèches,” she said.
