St. Peter’s Health said Tuesday it has purchased Creative Horizons Learning Center, a Helena child care facility, to expand its operations and to help more employees in need of child care.
The center is at 3430 Ptarmagin Lane, near the health system’s North Clinic and Physical Rehabilitation North Clinic. The purchase price was not disclosed.
The early childhood learning and development center will be called Peter’s Place North, and all 17 of the former Creative Horizons staff members were invited to continue to work at this location.
St. Peter’s said it “welcomed” all 55 children now receiving care at Creative Horizons to attend Pete’s Place until they are old enough to attend kindergarten. This fall, the health system intends to open more classrooms at the new facility after renovations are complete, opening 45 child care spots for its employees.
