The Mid Island Collaborative wishes to hear from parents, caregivers and child care providers regarding child care in the Nanaimo/Oceanside region. The City of Parksville has partnered with neighbouring local governments, First Nation governments, School Districts 68 and 69, non-profits, child care providers and educators to create a strategic, coordinated approach to increasing access to affordable and appropriate childcare through the creation of new child care spaces in our community.

The City of Parksville is collaborating with the City of Nanaimo, District of Lantzville, Town of Qualicum Beach and the Regional District of Nanaimo to undertake a study of child care needs in our community. With financial support from the Union of British Columbia Municipalities, the collaborative hired a consultant to prepare a child care needs assessment for the region. The assessment will study regional child care capacity and needs for children between 0 and 12 years old.

To support the project, the Mid Island Child Care Planning Collaborative was established to study child care requirements in Lantzville, Nanaimo, Parksville, Qualicum Beach, Regional District of Nanaimo and Snuneymuxw,Snaw-Naw-As and Qualicum Nations. The collaborative includes representatives from municipal and First Nation governments, School Districts 68 and 69, non-profits, child care providers and educators. The collaborative wants to hear from parents, caregivers and expected parents in the mid island region, regarding child care needs and priorities.
