For several months, Small Wonder Child Care Inc., St. Leo’s Catholic Church, Fergus County Port Authority and the City of Lewistown have been working to expand our daycare program into St. Leo's Parish Center. They have worked many hours to try and make this expansion work to meet the immediate childcare needs of the local community. However, on Wednesday, August 28, the Small Wonder Board of Directors in agreement with Fergus County Port Authority, Snowy Mountain Development Corporation, the Small Wonder Leadership Team and others working closely with the project made a mutual decision to stop efforts to expand into St. Leo's Parish Center, and the board officially voted to stop the expansion project.
Ultimately, the building just cannot meet Small Wonder's needs as a childcare center. We are taking what we have learned and are continuing to move forward. We will continue to work with Fergus County Port Authority, City of Lewistown, Snowy Mountain Development Corporation and many others as we pursue professional planning assistance to evaluate all potential options at future expansion.
