The Construction Zone

Funded by the Government of Ontario Ministry of Education, Scott Young Public School will see the addition of a full service child care centre and an EarlyON centre connected to the school. Furthermore, the school will receive an addition of two new Kindergarten classrooms, and an internal renovation to transform three existing classrooms into two more Kindergarten classrooms. This project received the approval to proceed by the Ministry of Education in March 2023.

The Construction Zone

Once this project is complete and ready to accept students, the Lady Eaton Elementary School students will join the SYPS community. Bringing these two schools together will enhance programming and learning opportunities available for students.

SYPS Construction Update

Construction is moving along here at SYPS. Currently, the daycare portion of the addition has footings in the ground and frost walls are going up. The Kindergarten classrooms at the back are being prepared with bulldozing and digging rocking and rolling. It is an exciting construction site to be seen! We can’t wait to watch the progress over the next few months. Many of you may have noticed the temporary parking lot created for contractors at the corner of Walnut and Deane. Over the next few weeks, this lot will be used by the construction crew that have been parking in the current construction area. With their space quickly dwindling, they are in need of different parking spaces.

Below, please find the plans for the new classrooms and daycare center. Note that the addition is bolded in the first image, and shadowed in the second. We will update “The Construction Zone” bi-weekly as progress is made.
