St. Louis Catholic Elementary School in Leamington will be adding six new classrooms and three new licensed child care rooms funded by the Ministry of Education.

“This is tremendous news for the families in this area who choose Catholic education for their children,” said Mary DiMenna, Trustee for Area 2 (Essex/Harrow/Kingsville/Leamington). “Working families are certainly going to appreciate having more daycare options, and the extra classrooms will certainly help accommodate the growth we’ve seen at this school due to increased student enrollment.”

Earlier this year, the Board received $3.4 million in funding from the Ministry of Education’s 2019-20 Capital Priorities Program and Child Care Capital Funding Program to construct the six classroom addition at the Talbot Street school.

The six new classrooms, to be built on the west side of the school, will accommodate 147 students. The previously approved childcare funding will allow the existing childcare at the school to expand with two new pre-school rooms and a toddler room, to accommodate over 60 additional children.
