Story Book Early Learning Centre Fire
It is with sadness that Director of Story Book Early Learning Centre, Donna Hedrick, must inform the families whose children attend Story Book Early Learning Centre, 26 Arthur Avenue, Essex that a devastating fire that began late Friday night has completely destroyed the historic building that housed Story Book. Their records were destroyed in the fire and their phone communications are still being re-routed.
The centre will be closed until further notice. However the location at Essex Public School will be fully functional for those families whose children are already enrolled at that location.
Hedrick is currently working diligently to secure a new location for those affected by the fire. She will send out a further update the moment she has a place and the date they will be able to open their doors to welcome back the children and their families.
Hedrick says they owe an enormous debt of gratitude to the firefighters of Essex, Lakeshore and Kingsville who battled this blaze in sub-zero temperatures throughout the night.
She thanks the families, her staff and the entire community for the outpouring of kindness and support.
Hedrick says she looks forward to reuniting with everybody as soon as possible.
