Daycare Fees Down! Wages Up!Wednesday, July 28 2010
Under the Agreement in Principle on Early Learning and Child Care, BC will receive $633 million from the federal government over the next 5 years [for regulated child care for children under the age of 6].
This is enough to begin building a publicly funded, non-profit, high quality, affordable and accessible child care system that meets the needs of children and their working families.
We are demanding the BC government use these funds to bring:
- FEES DOWN - Unless user fees for child care come down and stay down, BC
children and families will not be able access quality child care.
- WAGES UP - Unless caregivers' wages go up and stay up, BC will not be able
to improve and sustain quality child care services.
