The City’s Child Care Assessment and Action Plan, completed in Spring of 2020, identified the pressing demand for more child care spaces in our community, as well as the opportunity for the City to lease space to a potential licensed child care provider in an area upstairs at the Recreation Complex.
The purpose of the Request for Expressions of Interest (EOI), posted below and to BC Bid, is to solicit applications from qualified Child Care providers in the community who desire to move into this space and increase their available child care spaces, or to operate a new licensed facility within the space. Information provided by the successful applicant will help to inform the City's application to the BC New Child Care Spaces Fund. If the application is successful, funds will be used to complete the renovations required to accommodate this potential new use. Applications are due by 4:00 pm, October 23rd, 2020.
For additional details, please see the full Request for Expressions of Interest, posted below.
