Williams Lake is encouraged to help raise awareness of the need for quality and affordable child care next Tuesday by participating in a stroller brigade, hosted by the Early Childhood Development Network.
Participants in the brigade will meet at the Boitanio Mall parking lot on Tuesday, May 12 at 11 a.m. and walk to Kiwanis Park.
The week of May 10-17 is the national week of action for child care with events planned across the country.
People are also encouraged to push for child care in the 2015 federal election to ensure every parent the opportunity to contribute to the workforce and strengthen the economy.
“Our federal government must come to the table with the provinces and territories, in B.C. to support implementation of the $10 a day childcare plan,” states Vote Child Care 2015 in its promotional materials for the week.
The Early Childhood Development Network is a group that meets monthly in Williams Lake, made up of agencies that serve children ages 0 to 6.
