Why can’t Grandview just lease/rent more space?

  • Grandview owns the Oshawa location. Due to significant space pressures, Grandview is currently leasing space in Ajax, Clarington, Port Perry, Greenbank, and two locations in Whitby. The cost of the leases comes out of Grandview's operating budget. Decreasing lease costs would mean increasing dollars to serve more kids. In addition, multiple locations create pressure for maintenance, cleaning and operating, all of which pulls more resources out of Grandview's operating budget. However, it's important for families from across Durham Region to be able to access services at Grandview, so a new Grandview will maintain a couple of strategically-located satellite sites in outlying areas.
