Parents line up overnight to register for afterschool care as Whistler struggles with child-care staffing
from Pique Newsmagazine
As Whistler contends with the same childcare shortage affecting much of B.C., some local parents had to line up overnight recently to register their children for the municipality's Kids on the Go program. Whistler Mayor Nancy Wilhelm-Morden conceded that the Kids on the Go program should probably expand beyond its 54 registration spots to keep pace with the community's growth. She did acknowledge, however, that, like many other local employers, the municipality has struggled to recruit qualified staff.
