More than 100 child care spaces are up for grabs at three Richmond facilities, as part of the B.C. government’s $10 a day ChildCareBC program.

West Cambie Children’s Centre, Cook Road Children’s Centre and Seasong Child Care Centre will have a total of 124 spaces, with fees capped at a maximum of $200 a month per child.

The number of $10 a day spaces has increased across the province from 2,500 when the program began in 2018 to more than 6,500.

$10-a-day child care spaces to double again says province

The government claims that the number of $10 a day spaces in the province will double again to 12,500 by this December, with financial help from Ottawa.

According to the government, by the end of this year, the “average rate of child care will be reduced by 50 per cent from 2019 levels for children five and younger.”
