It's time for affordable child care in BC.

BC families face a crisis in accessing quality, affordable child care. Fees are too high — the second highest family expense after housing. Wait lists are too long — less that 20% of children under the age of 12 in BC have access to a regulated child care space. And too often families are forced into unregulated care, with no safety standards.

The $10aDay Child Care Plan is the solution to BC’s child care crisis. Since its release, the $10aDay Child Care Plan has been enthusiastically endorsed and supported by a growing number of individuals and organizations.

Add your voice to the thousands of British Columbians calling on government to adopt and implement the Plan!

 

I endorse the $10aDay Child Care Plan as the solution to BC's child care crisis.

This Plan has the potential to make a real difference for BC children, families and communities.

I urge politicians to commit to the Plan's vision and work with communities to immediately begin its implementation

    We need affordable daycare. How can we survive if working full time with high cost of daycare prices.

    You know, if people can afford childcare (and at this point many simply can’t) then they can WORK, they can pay TAX….as it is, many people have to go on welfare simply because they can’t afford to pay for the babysitter full time. Many caregivers charge up to $90/day per child. It just makes SENSE to subsidize daycare so that people can work and be effective contributors to society. Even if you don’t have kids….what would you rather:


    1. your tax dollars go to pay welfare for a whole family cause they can’t afford to work…or:


    2. your tax dollars subsidize some daycare so that same family can have working parents (who also pay taxes)?


    It just makes sense.


    This is an issue that affects all people in our society.
