The City of Richmond is seeking public feedback to inform the 2020 community child care planning project. The public is invited to share their experience and thoughts on child care in order to identify which types of child care are most needed and where these services are best located. This project will shape the strategic direction and future actions for child care in Richmond.

Parents, guardians, expecting parents, and members of the public interested in sharing feedback are encouraged to complete an online survey posted on The online survey will be available until Oct. 25. Printed versions of the survey and help with completing the survey are available upon request.

Additional engagement activities are also available for child care operators, community organizations and employers in Richmond. To request online access and/or a copy to these surveys via mail, email

Since 1991, the city has made a significant commitment to support the development of child care in Richmond. The city currently owns ten purpose-built child care facilities and has one additional child care facility and two early childhood development hubs in various stages of development. Since 1995, the city has undertaken four child care needs assessments. The most recent 2017-2022 assessment recommends that the city and stakeholders work together to address the need for quality, affordable, accessible child care spaces in Richmond. As a result, this planning project has been initiated with support from the Union of British Columbia Municipalities.
