The BC government has committed to making child care more affordable for families in all areas of the province. To help achieve this goal, effective April 2018, licensed group and family infant/toddler and/or 3-5 years child care providers will be invited to participate in the Child Care Free Reduction Initiative, and pass savings on to parents through reduced monthly fees. Parents with children enrolled at participating licensed group or home-based facilities may be eligible for monthly reductions in their parent fees by:

  • $350/month/space for group infant/toddler care;
  • $200/month/space for family infant/toddler care;
  • $100/month/space for group 3-5 year care; and
  • $60/month/space for family 3-5 year care
