Daycare already has waitlist of more than 30

The manager for a new daycare in Fort Smith, N.W.T., says she has a plan to connect kids with elders, culture and community.

The Fort Smith Métis Daycare, which officially opened its doors on March 6, was two years in the making — a project spearheaded by the Fort Smith Métis Council when they saw a need for more childcare options in the community.

“It has been a lot of hard work getting us to this point but it’s been amazing. And we’ve received a lot of wonderful feedback from the families that are in the program,” said Kristie Vyse, the daycare manager.

Vyse, who operated a day home in the community for 12 years, said there’s a buzz in town about the daycare, with people even stopping her at the grocery store eager to get their children signed up or apply for a job position.

Even before opening day, the daycare had a waitlist of more than 30 applicants. It’s licensed for 28 children but can only accommodate 16 at this time until it hires more staff.
