More people will have access to local child care when Capilano University’s (CapU) new purpose-built Centre for Childhood Studies opens with expanded on-site child care and learning spaces for students at the School of Education & Childhood Studies.

Slated to open in 2024, the Centre for Childhood Studies will more than double CapU’s existing child care capacity by adding 74 new spaces for a total of 143 on-campus spaces. Students, employees and community members are all eligible to apply for space for their children at the new centre.
