Public Childcare Now

Families lack the before- and after-school childcare they need, and the solution is B.C.’s public schools. British Columbia’s public school system has the tools to overcome the most significant barriers to creating before- and after-school care, and can deliver improved access and fewer transitions for kids. This would create a seamless system of high-quality school-aged childcare that is affordable and convenient for parents and families.
