Candy Cane cares for area’s children

Next year, Candy Cane Corner Childcare Center will move into a facility nearly twice the size of their current building, but for now, the nonprofit daycare is filled to capacity.
Candy Cane Corner will soon occupy part of the old hospital building located on Lampasas Street, said Pam Skinner, director of Candy Cane Corner Childcare Center. Right now, Candy Cane Corner, a Greater Ennis United Way agency, takes children 18 months to 12 years, but with four more classrooms in the new building, Skinner said the daycare will start accepting newborns.

“I think it will be a huge benefit to parents,” she said. “We already have a waiting list of about 20.”

The new building will also house the Ennis Golden Circle, as part of a project Skinner calls “Generations Together.” Although both the seniors’ center and daycare will have completely separate facilities, they will be able to interact with each other, Skinner said.

“We want that building to merge all generations together,” she said.
