Our child care centre has been ripped out from under our feet. Jobs have been cut.

We NEED our daycare back!

On March 30th we received a letter telling us that our daycare-Sonshine Daycare located in St.John the Baptist Grade School-Belle River would no longer be open come June 29th.

Sonshine daycare is filled with the most loving and caring woman. These ladies have been with Sonshine for 30+ years. These ladies care unconditionally for children on a daily basis, including my daughter.

Do you know how difficult it is to decide where to send your child to be cared for? Finding someone you can trust? Finding affordable childcare? Finding a place you consider home, and where teachers become your family?

Do you know who taught my baby girl to blow her momma kisses? Who encouraged my daughter to take her first steps? Who taught my daughter the fundamentals of sharing? Do you know who taught my daughter to use a spoon all on her own? Who showed my daughter to color and paint? Who taught my daughter to sing "Old McDonald"?

These fabulous ladies did! My husband and I chose these ladies to have such a huge part in our daughters life, while we had to go to work all day. Do you know how hard it is to trust someone with your child?

Leaving my daughter in the hands of these fabulous ladies was the best and easiest decision we have ever made! And now just like that, the school board is closing our much needed daycare. You do not realize how you have impacted all of our families!

Now what? What is your solution to someone caring for my daughter everyday?What is your solution to all of these ladies now jobless? I now have to find someone to trust all over again. I am losing a member of my family, I am losing the person who has the biggest impact on my daughters early years. All because of someone's lousy decision!

You did not think! You did not think of the impact! You did not think of anyone but yourself.

Do you know that Belle River is a small town? Do you know that there is limited quality care? Do you know that parents need to work and now are left scrambling for quality care for their children?

Do you know that you now leave multiple people jobless? Do you know the full effects this has on so many people in a small town?

You have made so many people hurt, all because of your thoughtless actions!

You have torn our daycare family apart.....
