Development of a new West Vancouver Child Care Plan

In 2009-2010 the Child Care Services Working Group developed a Child Care Plan for West Vancouver. Many of the objectives in the original plan have been accomplished. It is now time to review and update the plan so that it anticipates and addresses future needs.

The District is developing strategies and recommendations for a new West Vancouver Child Care Plan. The Child Care Plan will include a community needs and issues assessment related to child care for children 0-12 years.


The purpose of this survey is to understand, from parents’ and guardians’ perspectives, the current and anticipated child care service needs of West Vancouver residents.

For this survey, child care includes full and part-day group daycare, in-home child care, preschool, out-of-school care and summer camps. Child care services (for the purposes of this survey) do not include out-of-school time programs (i.e., programs that are usually an hour like music lessons, tutoring, sports).

The information you provide is critical in assisting and informing the District in child care planning, policy and the development of an updated Child Care Plan.

Deadline to complete this survey: September 30, 2018
