The Greater Victoria School District is preparing to create new spaces for child care on its property.
The B.C. government announced earlier this month that it will create 22,000 new child-care spaces across the province over the next three years.
Along with private, public, and non-profit providers, the government is also looking to school districts to apply for funding to expand child-care facilities on school grounds.
The Greater Victoria School District already has 1,000 child-care spaces on its properties, mostly for school-age kids, but following the announcement, trustees are looking to create more to help meet the government’s target.
