Attention Parents, Guardians, and Caregivers! We want to hear from you!

Voice your opinion on child care in the Langleys 

Langley City, BC – Across the province, municipalities are recognizing the need for child care in their communities. The City and Township of Langley acknowledge the child care struggles for families and have decided to come together to get feedback on child care in the Langleys.  

Langley parents, guardians, caregivers are encouraged to complete an online survey before November 22, 2019, and share their experiences with child care. City residents who complete the online survey and attend one of the two public meetings will be able to enter a prize draw for one of two 10-visit family recreation passes.  

Parent & Guardian Meeting  
Wednesday, November 6, 2019 
6:00pm – 7:30pm 
Multi-Purpose Room #1, Timms Community Centre, 20399 Douglas Crescent 

Pop-Up Parent Dialogue 
Thursday, November 7, 2019 
9:00am – 12:00pm 
Reception, Timms Community Centre, 20399 Douglas Crescent 

Survey and Engagement results will shape Langley City’s Child Care Action Plan, and the plan will also be shared with the Province and may assist future provincial investments in child care. The City anticipates the completion of its separate Langley City Action Plan by spring 2020, with implementation to follow. The Child Care Action Plan will help guide and address child care needs and issues in the community.  

“Results from the engagement will be shared publicly in a report to Langley City Council, and the plan will help shape policy decisions and identify potential opportunities,” said Mayor Val van den Broek. “I encourage all parents, grandparents, guardians and other caregivers to fill out the online survey and attend one of these public events.” 

Funding for this project is being provided by the Union of BC Municipalities Child Care Planning Program, and the information gathered through this project will be shared with the BC Ministry of Children and Family Development. 
“This project will help us shape child care in Langley City,” said Karlo Tamondong, Recreation Supervisor. “We would like to thank the Union of BC Municipalities Child Care Planning Program and the Government of British Columbia for providing the funding.”
