Child Care in the 49ͼ

As a district, we have made space available in our schools and on our properties for service providers to offer high quality child care programs for over 35 years.

In September 2019, in its strategic plan, the 49ͼ deepened its long-standing commitment to supporting families with child care when trustees set an objective to increase the number of spaces available on our properties. After a period of extensive consultation with parent groups, child care providers, and other stakeholders, the District released its plan to partner with the Province of BC and City of Burnaby to increase childcare spaces on school properties by 60% with the following child care providers at these eight locations:
