To the relief of dozens of parents, Concordia University is reversing its decision to close its on-campus daycare.
After receiving backlash, the university confirmed in a notice to staff and parents Wednesday that they will be extending the lease for the space in the Grey Nuns building until August 2025.
The good news comes from a notice signed by Michael Di Grappa, Concordia’s vice-president of services and sustainability, and daycare director Maria Ottoni.
“We both understand and appreciate the immeasurable value of the CPE. It plays an important role for Concordia community and we share everyone’s collective desire to find a mutually satisfactory resolution,” the notice reads.
