As parents return to work, the province is making affordable, quality child care more accessible for families by investing in five projects in Surrey and Coquitlam that will create 217 new licensed spaces – including 88 in the Surrey School District.
Surrey Schools will partner with a non-profit organization to build a new child care centre conveniently located on the grounds of Erma Stephenson Elementary. The school district expects the new child care centre to be open for the 2021-22 school year.
The centre will deliver 40 preschool spaces and 48 spaces for before- and after-school care. Families of the child care centre will also have access to the school district's welcome centre, which supports families new to Canada by providing information, orientation, translation, as well as settlement and multicultural services.
Through the Childcare BC New Spaces Fund, the province is also investing in the following projects:
Just Kiddies Childcare (Coquitlam) – 36 spaces
City of Surrey – 36 spaces
Sowing Seeds Preschool (Surrey) – 20 spaces
St. George Malankara Orthodox Church (Surrey) – 37 spaces
