Vernon, B.C. hears about ‘desperate need’ as city’s first child care space action plan created

The lack of quality child care has left some Okanagan families with few options.
Now the City of Vernon is stepping up its response to the issue by creating its first-ever child care space action plan which could help the community create more daycare spots for kids.
A consultant working on creating the action plan said that, so far, the city has heard from families who responded to a survey that there is a “desperate need” for more child care spaces in Vernon and Coldstream.
