Children’s Daycare

There are 3 privately owned/operated-licensed children’s daycare services in Rivers.

The Riverdale Community Daycare is a board that was formed by members of the community who are dedicated to securing a much-needed community daycare in Rivers. Currently, they are in the funding stages of this project before renovations will begin. Rolling River School Division has agreed to make this a project a reality by allowing the daycare to be located in Rivers Collegiate. Three rooms will be transformed into the new centre.
