This is how I advocate

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. I imagine that I’ll use about that many to tell the story of this particular picture and how the image of something in your mind can develop as it’s processed into a final picture.  

In my journey as an early care and learning advocate, there has been a wide range of emotions that either sparkle or sabotage each idea that I entertain. Linearly, the journey has been relatively short. I returned to school in September of 2013.

Welcome to 10aDay.ca!

BC families face a crisis in accessing quality, affordable child care. And, the BC government has no plan to meet the needs of working families. Together, we can change this reality!

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:

  • Children, women and families
  • Employers, communities and our economy

Then, join the thousands of British Columbians working to ensure that $10aDay Child Care becomes a reality. Sign our petition, share our new site, and spread the word! 

Thank you!
