Make child care a visible election issue - come take part in a Stroller Brigade!
The Coalition of Child Care Advocates of BC along with the Early Childhood Educators of BC and The Waitlisted Project are supporting province-wide “Stroller Brigades for Child Care” and we’d like you to be a part of the fun.
Did you know: child care funding is managed by the provinces, but a portion of that funding comes from the federal government? Together we need to ensure that those elected on October 21st support the $10aDay Plan by protecting the $50 million BC now receives annually for child care – and committing to grow that amount over time.
On October 5th in communities across the province families and educators will be holding ‘Stroller Brigades’ to make child care visible.
So far, big and small Stroller Brigades are being organized in: Comox, Campbell River, Nelson, Burnaby, Victoria, Penticton, Vancouver, Kelowna, Vernon, Parksville, Terrace, New Westminster, Richmond and Quesnel.
Stay tuned for more details and mark your calendar for a Stroller Brigade on October 5th!
