Times Colonist
NDP leader Adrian Dix used a campaign stop in Sidney to highlight his party's promise to reduce child care fees, while also asking voters who might be flirting with the Greens to stick by his party. Dix gathered South Island NDP candidates in a park in Sidney, where he reaffirmed the "critical importance" of affordable child care. The NDP's $100 million child care plan will cut fees in family and group day cares by 20 per cent, affecting 12,000 children, Dix said.

Crisis Nursery celebrates 30 years caring for children
The StarPhoenix
A family crisis or emergency means that children don't always have a safe place to stay. Many parents need support, whether it's for a few hours or a few days. Saskatoon's Crisis Nursery offers emergency childcare (free of charge) and a home-away-from home for children up to age 12. Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the nursery has room for 10 children at one time. Last year, staff was able to help 1,278 kids from 741 families in the city.

Parents worried by day care's closing
Ottawa Citizen
The City of Ottawa is shutting down one of its day cares and turning over four others as full-day school programs are rolled out for younger children, a move that doesn't sit well with some parents. Like private day care operators, the city is adapting as provincially mandated full-day kindergarten is implemented at schools, along with before-and after-school programs where there is sufficient demand.
