COVID-19 update: Childcare at community centres

Licensed childcare and preschool services at some community centres begins September 1, 2020. Specific reopening dates are set by individual community centre assocations (CCA) and childcare operators. 

Each childcare site supports between 20 to 174 children, ages 2½ to 12. CCAs and childcare operators will determine how their spaces will be filled and can give priority to children of essential service workers and vulnerable children and youth. Operators must use spaces in accordance to Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) licensing regulations. VCH licensing does not require childcare operators to reduce their capacity.

Physical distancing will be managed according to provincial health guidance and will include a combination of markers, signage, and modified activities.

Staggered pick up and drop off times will be encouraged to reduce the chance of overcrowding, along with physical distancing measures.

Contact a community centre for more information

Masks are mandatory in our facilities at all the times with the exception of those under the age of 12. Masks may be temporarily removed when participating in sports and fitness. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided at the front desk.
