Mississauga offering day camps in wake of teacher strikes
If you're unsure of how to go about finding childcare in the wake of rotating school strikes, you might be happy to hear that the city is providing full-day camps for children affected by the ongoing job action.
The city says that in response to the Peel school board announcements of elementary school closures, the municipality is offering full-day camps at Mississauga Valley Community Centre and Churchill Meadows Activity Centre on Tuesday, Feb. 4 and Thursday, Feb. 6.
Registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
Outside of the additional programming mentioned above, the city also offers a variety of drop-in recreation programs for children and families. Families can also visit a local library and take advantage of drop-in programs.
All programs are free and require no reservations or appointments unless otherwise noted.
The full program schedule for February can be found in the What's On At The Library guide.
Residents can also use their Mississauga library cards and PINs to download free apps to access movies, books, ebooks and audiobooks.
