Today, the Coalition of Child Care Advocates of BC is pleased to launch the $10aDay Child Care Campaign web site at 10aDay.ca.
The Campaign is led by a passionate, dedicated and skilled group of volunteers and very part-time consultants. Our leadership is collective – not individual. It honours the unique contribution each of us brings to the table. We are also proud to be part of, and inspired by, the child care movement in Canada – a movement whose value of sharing can and will change the world.
The Campaign also builds on our ongoing collaboration with the Early Childhood Educators of BC to raise public awareness about the child care crisis in BC – and about our solution, the $10aDay Child Care Plan.
Check out 10aDay.ca for information about the crisis, our Plan and the benefits for:
