Sewickley Child Care Center

sewThe Masonic Village at Sewickley recently received a $74,095 Child Care Challenge Grant from the Department of Community and Economic Development to expand its child care center. Given to non-profit organizations, the Child Care Challenge Grants are part of a multi-year Childhood Initiative designed to ensure Pennsylvania's young children are healthy, safe and ready for school.

The grant will enable the Masonic Village at Sewickley Child Care Center to expand by 816 square feet, providing a new infant room and increasing the size of the toddler rooms. The renovated center will have capacity for 62 children.

The grant also will go toward new playground equipment, new toys and supplies, a new security door and a portion of the salary and benefits for six months for three new child care workers. Expansions to the child care center are expected to be completed in summer 2004. The center offers intergenerational programming multiple times per month.
