About the $10 A Day Plan

In 2010, the Coalition of Child Care Advocates of BC and the Early Childhood Educators of BC released a draft plan for an Integrated System of Early Care and Learning in BC. The draft responded to BC’s implementation of full school day Kindergarten for 5 year olds and the deepening child care crisis facing BC families.

For over 6 months, thousands of British Columbians engaged in a dialogue about our draft plan. This dialogue helped shape and inform our finalized Community Plan for a Public System of Integrated Early Care and Learning.

The Plan, released in April 2011, offers a concrete, innovative and ambitious way forward and provides a framework for significant and lasting change.

Since its release, the Plan has been enthusiastically endorsed and supported by a growing number of individuals and organizations. These voices are calling on government to adopt and implement the Plan so that children, families, communities and our economy are served by a high quality, universal, democratic and accountable system of early care and learning.
