Regional District offering child care options for teachers’ strike

The Cowichan Valley Regional District is offering child care solutions for parents wondering what they will do with their children next Thursday when teachers in the district will be on strike.

The Recreation and Culture department will offer day camps at both the Island Savings Centre in Duncan and Kerry Park Recreation Centre in Mill Bay, while Cowichan Lake Recreation will offer dropin programs.

The camps will be for kids aged six to 12. They will include games, activities, arts and crafts and swimming.

"We recognize that parents might be struggling to find child care as a result of this job action by the teachers, so we are here to help and give options," said Denise Williams, child & youth programmer at the Island Savings Centre.

Get more information about the camps at and on the CVRD’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
