Child Care Analysis

The municipalities of Central Saanich, Highlands, North Saanich, Oak Bay, Saanich, and Sidney have partnered to develop an inventory of child care spaces and create an action plan to increase the availability of child care in our communities. The family and community engagement phase has closed, and the findings will be presented to the municipal councils in summer 2020.

Our consultants are now working to develop an action plan to help meet the estimated need for spaces, including supporting child care providers to create or expand licensed child care facilities. If you are considering creating child care spaces in any of the partner municipalities, reach out to our consultants, Queenswood Consulting Group, at, to share your plans and see if they can offer any assistance.
