Child care costs just $10 a day for these B.C. families — and it’s changed their lives

Parents getting the reduced rate as part of the province’s pilot project say they’re less stressed, eating healthier and climbing out of debt.

VANCOUVER—Daycare costs are a major chunk of the budget for practically any household with children, but a B.C. pilot project has been a gift for families who now pay just $10 a day.
“It came at the best moment for us, because we were at the point where we didn’t have any savings left, and I almost had to postpone my studies so I could afford everything,” said Vancouver mom-of-two Gabriela Linck, who is studying marketing at Langara College.
