As a grandmother I think I am very very lucky. My daughter, her husband and their two children live in my community. What more could you ask for? Many of my “Nana” friends travel long distances to visit their grandkids, so I know how fortunate I am. I also know how fortunate my daughter is. I didn’t have the daily support of my parents when I was raising my kids.  I spent three years a single parent.  I went it alone, piecing together part time work, school and child care, which was tricky as I had preschool and school age children.

The Vancouver Sun ... Child Care for $10aDay is Feasible in Canada

Introducing universal $10-a-day child care would grow the province’s economy by $3.9 billion and generate $1.3 billion in government revenue once fully phased in, according to a report released today by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives.

Governments could recover 86 cents on every dollar invested in universal child care for B.C., a study says.
