Achieving academic success is difficult enough – add to it the responsibilities of raising a child and it can really be daunting. We know that some students need some extra supports to help them achieve their academic goals. The recently renovated pamināwasowin Child Care Centre is conveniently located right on campus. It can accommodate up to 90 children and it’s one of the lowest-cost daycares in Regina.
