West Vancouver Child Care Services Working Group
The mandate of this committee is to address current child care issues in West Vancouver and to carry out policy review and strategic planning. Please follow the West Vancouver web site link for more details.

North Shore Child Care Planning Committee
This committee’s mission is to provide a structure that promotes collaborative planning for child care issues on the North Shore. Membership is made up of child care providers, Social Planners from the three municipalities, school district representatives, Child Care Licensing, Capilano University, ECE, Supported Child Development, CCRR and MCFD. The committee meets at least 5 times a year. In 2007, the committee commissioned a consultant to conduct a comprehensive look at the child care situation on the North Shore. In June 2007 a report Today’s Children, Tomorrow’s Leaders: Child Care Needs on the North Shore was released. This needs assessment examined the current situation of child care from the perspectives of parents and child care providers and will assist the guidance of future planning in the Districts of North and West Vancouver and the City of North Vancouver. This report will also guide the activities and collaboration of the Committee members. Please follow the attached link to view the needs assessment.
