$10 A Day ChildCareBC Program

We are pleased to offer local families affordable childcare with the Province of B.C.’s $10 a Day ChildCareBC Program.

Effective April 1, 2022, seven out of nine SSCS childcare programs have been accepted as $10 a Day ChildCareBC Centres. On January 1, 2024, Brackendale Childcare Program was accepted as the eighth of our nine SSCS childcare programs. This is great news for Sea to Sky families as it helps make childcare more affordable in our communities.

The $10 a Day ChildCareBC Program is part of the province of B.C.’s plan to reduce childcare fees and expand childcare access for all families in B.C.

Families will be offered childcare at a reduced cost, regardless of household income. See Fee Schedule

A total of 180 SSCS childcare spaces (12 in Pemberton and 168 in Squamish) participate in the program. Below is a list of our $10 a Day ChildCareBC Centres:

  • Brackendale Childcare Program
  • Dandelions and Dragonflies Childcare Program
  • Valleycliffe Out of School Care
  • Mamquam Out of School Care
  • Brackendale Out of School Care
  • Pemberton Out of School Care
  • Squamish Out of School Care (also applies to full day daycare during school breaks)
  • Garibaldi Highlands Out of School Care (also applies to full day daycare during school breaks)

Eligibility requirements for the program exclude half-day preschool programs, so our Garibaldi Highlands preschool-age program is not included in the $10 a Day ChildCareBC Program.

If a space in one of the $10 a Day ChildCareBC Centres opens up we will notify families currently enrolled in our non-participating childcare program and/or families currently registered on our waitlist.

Our waitlist is now open
