Parents stunned to learn Downtown Eastside daycare to close - BCGEU

The sudden closure of a downtown Vancouver daycare centre has upset parents and raised questions about the timing of the decision.

Angela Giannoulis, whose three-year-old son Nikolas has been attending the Phil Bouvier Centre for two years, says the idea of a closure is heartbreaking.

"The relief to know that while you are at work your child is being lovingly cared for … and to think that's being taken away, and we have to start from scratch to try and find another space again in this city," she said.
