Finding childcare in Vancouver (or anywhere!) can be daunting, so many people start early to secure a spot that meets their needs. The City of Vancouver provides useful information about childcare options in the city, including information on programs operated by community centres and resources to help you navigate the process. West Coast Child Care Resource Centre manages a list of available childcare options and offers updates and short articles too. Finding the right fit for you and your family will require some exploration and can be supplemented with insights from your maternity care provider. May your planning and preparation help you find the best childcare option for you and your family!
