How is Grant Thornton conducting the review?

Grant Thornton conducted an independent review of the current program through a structured analysis consisting of:

  •  Review of the historical documentation surrounding the Child Care Services in Beaumont.
  •  A series of interviews with Beaumont employees directly connected to the delivery of Child Care Services for Beaumont, and senior employees who are key decision-makers with respect to the operations and the future of the Child Care Services.
  • A review engaging the private child care providers in Beaumont.
  •  A tailored jurisdictional scan looking at the limited number of municipally delivered or funded Child Care Services in Alberta. The communities included were Jasper, Drayton Valley, and Pincher Creek.

Grant Thornton will be utilizing a similar structured approach for the second phase of the review. They will be conducting Round Tables, focus groups, surveys, individual interviews, and having conversations with other current and possible future providers of child care services in the Beaumont area.
