Community Recommendations for BC’s First Steps toward a Public System of Child Care

British Columbia’s families finally have meaningful progress on solving the current child care chaos

In BC’s 2017 provincial election, both the BC NDP and BC Greens made child care the largest area of new spending in their platforms.

The $10aDay Plan is a comprehensive, evidence-based solution to the crisis of child care in BC. The Plan is grounded in public policy and funding proposals that address the affordability issue for all families with (or hoping to have) young children, and is central to an effective poverty reduction strategy.

The Coalition of Child Care Advocates of BC and Early Childhood Educators of BC call on the BC government to confirm the multi-lateral and bi-lateral child care agreements with the federal government, and to conclude child care discussions with the BC Green Caucus. These first steps to reduce today’s child care chaos are consistent with the election platforms of both the BC NDP and BC Greens.
