Penticton Herald - - OKANAGAN -

Child care in British Columbia will soon cost as lit­tle as $200 a month for some par­ents in the prov­ince.

Chil­dren’s Min­is­ter Katrine Con­roy says the $10-a-day plan is a pro­to­type and will start at 53 day­cares around B.C.

She says in a state­ment the project looks to be­come a model for the New Demo­crat gov­ern­ment’s 10-year plan for af­ford­able, qual­ity child care.

Okana­gan day­cares that will of­fer the $10a-day pro­to­type in­clude the YMCA Lit­tle Schol­ars child care and preschool in Kelowna, the Kin­der-place OSNS Child and Youth De­vel­op­ment Cen­tre in Pen­tic­ton, North Okana­gan Child Care So­ci­ety’s Maven Lane and Okana­gan In­dian Band’s Snc’c’amala?tn Early Child­hood Cen­tre in Ver­non.
