We are individuals and groups including parents, grandparents, child care providers, community organizations, academics and unions. We work collectively, using research, public education and mobilization, to achieve our vision of a high-quality, affordable, accessible child care system that serves the public interest - the $10aDay Plan.

We are a voluntary organization of interested citizens – parents, child care providers, community organizations, and unions.

We support

  • the development of a comprehensive, accessible and affordable community based child care system in BC and across Canada.
  • culturally relevant Indigenous-led services
  • the right of every child and family to quality child care within their own community.
  • a range of inclusive choices including licensed family and centre-based care.
  • stable, adequate government funding.
  • child care workers’ rights to wages and working conditions which reflect the level of training, responsibility and value of work performed.
  • parent and staff involvement in policy, procedure and program decisions.

We promote advocacy by

  • Informing the public about child care issues and the impact of public policy on children, families and communities.
  • Mobilizing families and communities to speak up and speak out for child care.
  • Encouraging child care workers to exercise their democratic right to unionize.
  • Using a child care lens we advocate for women’s equality and promote broader societal awareness, engagement and action on advancing gender equality.
