General Description of Requirement
The City of Vancouver (the “City”) is seeking expressions of interest (“Expressions of Interest”) from child care operators for the operation of one or more of three upcoming child care facilities. The childcare centres will be co-located with three seismically upgraded elementary schools at the following locations:
-Lord Nelson Elementary School
-Sir Sandford Fleming Elementary School
-Lord Tennyson Elementary School
City of Vancouver and Vancouver Board of Education (VBE) have been working together over the past decade to create before and after-school childcare spaces (School Age Care for 5-12 year olds) and more recently, full-day childcare (for 0-4 year olds). The broadened focus to include childcare for younger children (0-4 year olds) has marked a new phase in the City/VBE partnership, helping to provide vital childcare options for families with young children that are in-line with Vancouver’s policy and Council priorities. With up to 60 school facilities needing seismic upgrades or replacement over the next 15 years, the ongoing partnership between the VBE and the City will provide opportunities to integrate more full-time childcare facilities for young children (ages 0-4) into school facilities, and continue to facilitate the provision of School Age Care.
