Child-care programs in Manitoba got a big boost Wednesday with an $11.4 million funding announcement by the province.

The government said it plans to spend the money on everything from new child-care sites and spaces to wage increases for workers.

The funds will create 19 new child-care facilities, revitalize and expand several existing ones, and add 2,850 more spaces, said Family Services and Housing Minister Gord Mackintosh.

As well, the province intends to launch an ad campaign and hire more workers, develop a curriculum framework, and enhance child safety at the facilities, according to a news release issued Wednesday.
