A plan to mitigate crisis in child care

from Bowen Island Undercurrent

At a recent council meeting, a delegation was seeking council's support for the $10/day plan that addresses early childhood education. Sharon Gregson spoke on behalf of the Coalition of Child Care Advocates of BC and the Early Childhood Educators of BC and referred to a community event a few weeks ago that made islanders aware of the crisis in child care. "We plan to address that crisis by providing government with a ready-made plan: the Community Plan for a Public System of Integrated Early Care and Learning," Gregson said. She explained that child care expenses have steadily gone up in the Metro Vancouver area. "Vancouver is setting a trend with high fees and it costs as much as $1,900 a month for childcare on average. In a not for profit centre, the cost is approximately $1,200." more
