Statistics show that approximately 85% of military families now live off base. This means that families serving at CFB Trenton are living in communities like Belleville, Frankford, Batawa, and all around the Quinte region. The Trenton MFRC has made it our goal to ensure that military families can easily access our services, no matter where they live – so we are growing!
We are opening three new program locations beginning fall 2016.
Belleville – opening Decemberl 2016 – 49 licensed child care spaces
Frankford – opening late fall 2016 – bilingual preschool with 24 licensed child care spaces
Batawa – opening in 2017 – 49 licensed child care spaces
Trenton MFRC, Belleville will be a fully functional resource centre that will offer many of the resources that our home base in Trenton offers. This includes licensed child care, Welcome and Transition, Education and Employment, Mental Health and Deployment support and resources.
The 12th Annual Invisible Ribbon Gala successfully raised enough funds to complete Phase 1 of our expansion project for Belleville: renovating the building to meet licensed childcare requirements. Renovations include installing new walls, kitchen facilities, toilets, sinks, lighting, safety systems and outdoor play space.
