Introduction

The Bowen Island Municipality is seeking information from you regarding child care needs and availability on Bowen. With your input, we are hoping to learn more about full time and after school child care needs for all children from 0-12 years of age and our community’s current capacity to meet those needs. This information, once gathered, will be used to formulate a community specific action plan that will outline short, medium, and long term goals to help us ensure that the child care needs of the community are being met currently and into the future.

Even though you may not need childcare, we ask that as many households as possible in our community answer the survey (only one answer per household). From there, you will be guided through a series of questions relating to your family and needs, routing you through the questions depending on your answers. The survey should take about  20 to 30 minutes to complete. Please begin it when you have time to complete it in its entirety. Thank you in advance for your time spent providing data for this important conversation!
Let's get to it!
