Needs Assessments Resources

The primary purpose of a child care needs assessment is to provide a strong foundation for the future of early years programming within our community. A child care assessment also provides the support that many parents need to return to work, pursue educational opportunities, or thrive in their communities. Through community engagement and research, different types of needs are identified; current child care inventory and ideas to pinpoint the type of care and numbers of child care spaces needed is identified.  Below are the links to child care needs assessments completed in our areas. These have been financially supported through Columbia Basin Trust and Union of BC Municipalities grants.
