Child Care Analysis

Child Care Inventory and Action Plan 2020

A chronic shortage of daycare is causing significant problems for families with young children - impacting the quality of life, family budgets, and our municipal economies. Six municipal partners – Central Saanich, Highlands, North Saanich, Oak Bay, Saanich and Sidney - worked together to develop a childcare inventory, gap analysis, and develop a regional Saanich Peninsula child care action plan, funded by the Government of BC through the Union of BC Municipalities. The Child Care Inventory and Action Plans are focused on realistic and achievable actions with measurable results to enable the partner municipalities and communities to create new child care spaces and improve access to affordable, quality child care.
