Free daycare for low-income families announced

Registry for daycare spaces, higher pay for early childhood education workers also announced

Premier Brian Gallant announced changes to New Brunswick's daycare system Thursday afternoon, including plans to provide free care for certain low-income families, create a wait list for childcare spaces, and increase wages for people working in daycare centres.
Families with an annual income under $37,500 will now have access to free daycare, Gallant said, to give them "every opportunity to enter the workforce."
