Legends Casino builds new daycare center

Posted: Updated:

Toppenish, WASH.--Yakama Legends Casino will finally break ground on their new Child Care Center next Monday.

The center will be used by the kids of casino employees.

The casino's general manager, John MacClain, said, family values are one of their guiding principles, and this facility will give them more room and better quality care.

"It's very difficult in the casino industry to have a 24/7 daycare, and so if we have our own we'll be able to cover every shift and make sure that the kids are getting the best quality care at an affordable price," said MacClain.

The nearly $3 million daycare center is just one part of the casino's expansion plan.

They're working to secure funding for a 200 room hotel, and a new convention center. They're also planning to bring back concert events.
