$10 a day childcare prototype sites on the way

BC to test $10-a-day child care promise at 53 locations

BC to test $10-a-day child care promise at 53 locations

In all, parents of around 2,500 children will benefit from the prototype sites, which are being offered throughout the province.

On the Sunshine Coast, the sites that will offer the 10 dollar a day childcare are the non-profit Esprit Daycare in Gibsons and the privately-owned West Sechelt Tiny Tots Daycare in Sechelt. Spaces are being funded through a $60 million investment under the Early Learning and Child Care Agreement with the Government of Canada.

This is the next step in the provincial government's ten-year ChildCare BC plan. "Through this kind of action, where we significantly reduce the cost of child care, we can make life more affordable".

Sites were chosen by the Province after a call for applications this past June.

Child care in British Columbia will soon cost as little as $200 a month for some parents in the province.

"More than 50 childcare facilities will be converted to universal childcare prototype sites". The Province also promoted the Child Care Fee Reduction, which has reduced the cost of almost 52,000 childcare spaces across BC.

Flying motorbikes: Dubai police to have flying bikes by 2020
Mr Alrazooqi told CNN : "Currently we have two crews already training (to pilot the hoverbike) and we're increasing the number". Last year, Dubai launched a police robot that marked the first phase of a bold move to integrate robots among their officers.

The pilot project will run until March 2020 as the government explores the feasibility of one of its key election promises - universal affordable childcare. "These high-quality, low-priced spaces will help to shape the future direction of our Childcare B.C. plan, and we're excited to be working with providers to make life better for B.C. families".

Each site will also receive a one-time quality improvement grant in 2019 to help enhance program quality.

"Prototype sites give us a glimpse of what the future of universal child care in B.C. can be, and are critical as we design and refine our program moving forward", said Katrina Chen, B.C.'s Minister of State for Child Care. Nevermind that if they take their child out, they can't work.

Dicks said the daycare centre did not have to change any of its day-to-day operations or make any concessions in order to receive the funds. Children also learn about Indigenous culture through activities such as weaving, story time and acting.

She says in a statement the project looks to become a model for the New Democrat government's 10-year plan for affordable, quality child care.

This funding will allow the Kamloops Child Development Centre to offer 117 low-priced, licensed child care spaces to parents in Kamloops.
