The Ministry of Education and Child Care has been strongly encouraging school districts to provide after-school programming in schools and create 0-5 daycare spaces on school grounds. In response, School District 6 has developed a multi-year child care implementation plan. The first step of this plan involves working in partnership with third-party providers to offer after-school care in several schools across the District. Once third-party providers have licensing and staffing secured, information will be sent to families regarding locations, times, and how to register their children. If you would like receive additional information as it becomes available, please complete the ChildCare information registration form.
Next steps will include applying for ChildCareBC New Spaces Fund, to create 0-5 daycare spaces on school grounds. The District is in the early stages of reviewing the application process in order to secure funds to begin building childcare facilities across the district. More information on this initiative will be available in the fall.
