Child Care for Essential Workers
BC is launching a new process that will match parents, who are working on the front lines of BC’s COVID-19 response and have children up to five years of age, with child care in their communities.
Child Care Resource Referral (CCRR) centres will reach out to essential-service workers in their area who filled in the form to connect them with available licensed child care spaces.
Child care spaces will be prioritized for children whose parents work in healthcare, social services, law enforcement, first responders, and emergency response. Additional spaces will then be given to families working in other crucial roles, defined as essential service workers.
