Child Care Action Plan

The Township is preparing a Child Care Action Plan to improve access to affordable, quality child care in our community.

Struggling to find affordable, quality child care? Does your current child care arrangement meet your needs? Here’s how you can share your thoughts on child care and shape the development of our Action Plan:

Parent and Guardian Conversations (registration required)

If you can spare an hour, we’d appreciate a chance to talk to you about child care in more detail through these small group conversations. Our recreation staff will be on hand to provide child minding during these conversations, should you need it. 

Please register through EventBrite using the links above.

Online Surveys

Parents and Guardians: please take the parent and guardian survey.

Child Care Providers: please take the child care provider survey.

Both surveys will close on November 22. Township residents who complete the survey will be able to enter a prize draw for one of three 10-visit family recreation passes!

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 will formally get 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 are partnering on the first phase of the project, which focuses on community engagement, and will then develop separate Action Plans. Funding for this project is being provided by the UBCM Community Child Care Planning Program. For more information, please see Report to Council 18-165 .
