Key Registration Dates for Summer Break 2020

Priority registration is available for children of Essential Service Workers Tier 1 and Tier 2*, from the community, along with our currently enrolled families beginning May 28th. We encourage Tier 1 and Tier 2 ESWs to  register at the centre they would like before June 11, after that date they may be directed to another one of our centres that has space. 

Community ESWs please contact Westcoast Child Care Resource Centre for an online referral number.

We prioritize requests for care where the parent is an essential service worker. If the facility has no available spaces, the facility is required to prioritize access for children of essential service workers over access by an existing family, provided the existing family does not fall within the category of essential service worker, in accordance with the essential service worker priority tiers as defined by Emergency Management BC in consultation with other government ministries and the Provincial Health Officer
Placements for children of essential service workers based on the following priority:
• Tier 1 (highest priority): employed in Health and Health Services, Social Services, Law Enforcement, First Responders, and Emergency Response. For child care, Tier 1 also includes children approved to access care at a designated Young Parent Program, referred to child care by MCFD or a Delegated Aboriginal Agency, and/or children of teachers and support workers providing care to children of essential service workers or students who would benefit from additional supports.
• Tier 2 (second priority): all other occupations not included in Tier 1 that are listed in the Essential Service Workers list.
• Tier 3 (third priority): all other families not employed in an occupation listed in the Essential Service Workers list.
