Katrine Conroy, Minister of Children and Family Development, and Katrina Chen, Minister of State for Child Care, have issued the following joint statement to celebrate reaching a milestone under the Child Care Fee Reduction Initiative:
British Columbia municipalities and regional districts can now access nearly $17 million in funding to plan and build licensed child care spaces that will best meet the needs of local families.
With the launch of its new Affordable Child Care Benefit (ACCB), the provincial government is making child care more affordable for 80,000 B.C. families.
Dedicated, committed and exceptional are only a few of the words used to describe the outstanding child care professionals being honoured with 2018 Child Care Awards of Excellence.
Early childhood educators (ECEs) who provide vital services to B.C. children will be better supported by a new recruitment and retention strategy as part of the Province’s ChildCare BC plan.
