Child Care Analysis

We have partnered with the municipalities of Saanich, Central Saanich, Highlands, Oak Bay and Sidney to develop a community child care inventory and gap analysis.

The following types of child care services are being included in the analysis:

  • Group child care (under 36 months to school age)
  • Group child care (school age including after school or school closure care)
  • Preschool
  • Family child care
  • Occasional child care
  • Multi-age child care
  • In-home multi-age care
  • Child-minding

The analysis will establish an inventory of existing services and a dynamic action plan aimed at enhancing and expanding services to families in each of the six municipalities. The action plan will recommend ways to provide more daycare spaces in order to reduce travel time for families.

The six municipalities received a $150,000 grant through the Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) Community Child Care Planning Program to conduct the analysis. The analysis is expected to wrap up with a final report and action plan by November 2020.

A survey and a series of public houses were held in spring 2020. The results from that engagement are currently being analyzed.
