Kamloops childcare provider selected to deliver low-priced, universal child care

BC to test $10-a-day child care promise at 53 locations

On the Island, the $10-a-day prototype sites are: Fernwood Infant & Toddler Care in Victoria, Lexie's Little Bears Child Care in Langford, Grandma Marg's Clubhouse in Tofino, Rainbow Country Daycare Society in Port Hardy, the Alberni Valley Childcare Society's baby steps program in Port Alberni, the Hornby Island Daycare Society, Tigger Too Early Learning Centre in Comox and Parkside Academy Society in Duncan.

The centre offers support for families who are new to Canada and cares for many Indigenous children.

Families at the YMCA Highland Development Centre are now paying $200 a month per child as part of the government's universal child-care prototype project, the B.C. government announced Friday (Nov. 9). "Our objective for this is finding out what universal, high-quality childcare may look like for B.C. families".

The Province selected the sites after a call for applications in June.

The prototype day cares will receive government funding to cover their operational and administration costs. In return, they will reduce parent fees to a maximum of $200 per month for full-time enrolment during regular hours and will share their feedback with the B.C. government to help inform the future implementation of universal care.

The YMCA Highland Development Centre has been chosen to offer low-priced childcare for parents.

Rob Gronkowski reportedly won't play against the Titans
Last season, the Titans suffered a rout at the hands of Tom Brady and the Patriots in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. The Patriots played without Gronkowski in Week 7 against the Bears and Week 9 versus the Packers.

As well, each site will receive a one-time quality improvement grant in 2019 to help enhance the quality of the programs it delivers.

"For families on the North Shore, the burden of high child care fees in addition to soaring housing costs can be absolutely stifling", stated North Vancouver-Lonsdale MLA Bowinn Ma in a press release.

"Children are the experts at Discovery Kids Childcare, with their passions and interests driving daily activities", said Chen in a release. Nevermind that if they take their child out, they can't work.

The Kamloops Child Development Centre found out about the funding in September.

She says B.C.'s child care plan already offers families with incomes of $111,000 or less benefits of up to $1,250 a month and other fee reductions for families using licensed child care.

"Families can now have confidence that their children will be cared for in a quality, licensed facility and it will not cost more than a month's rent or a mortgage to do that".
