Project Overview

The Child Care Action Plan will assess current needs and trends, and identify space creation targets for the next 10 years, along with actions that the Township and the broader community could take to meet the targets. The information will also be shared with the Province, and may inform future provincial investments in child care space creation in the community. While child care licensing and funding is a provincial responsibility, local governments can play an important role in planning and supporting the provision of child care and early learning.

Work to prepare the Plan got underway in October 2019, and is currently anticipated to conclude in July 2020, with the implementation phase to follow. Langley City and the Township of Langley partnered on the first phase of the project, which focused on community engagement, and are now preparing separate Action Plans. Funding for this project is being provided by the UBCM Community Child Care Planning Program.
