Families in Victoria soon will have access to 439 new licensed child care spaces to be co-located at six local elementary schools.

The Greater Victoria School District is partnering with non-profit organizations to deliver these new spaces at elementary schools across the city. Each facility will be fully accessible and offer inclusive child care for children with extra support needs.

These new spaces are the first to be announced under the Childcare BC New Spaces Fund. 

The schools include Doncaster Elementary, Frank Hobbs, Macaulay, Tillicum, Vic West and Willows Elementary.

Several of the non-profit organizations will offer wraparound services at the new facilities, including counselling, healthy food and clothing to support vulnerable families, as well as programming for francophone families and those who are new to Canada.
