Richmond: The British Columbia government is expanding measures to lower the cost of child care by introducing fee reductions for preschool and school-aged children.
Premier David Eby says families with children in eligible half-day preschool, as well as before- and after-school programs, could save an additional $145 per month, per child,
as the program gets underway in September.
The province says the latest measure is in addition to savings of as much as $900 per month, per child, which families with kids who are kindergarten-aged or younger have been receiving since last December. — Canadian Press
