Excerpt from executive summary:
The 2001 provincial child care survey was intended to provide an up-to-date database of child care services in BC during the week of April 2 to 6, 2001. Two separate surveys were administered: one for licensed centre-based child care programs; and one for licensed family child care programs. The 2001 provincial child care survey captured much of the same information as in previous child care surveys in 1997, 1993, and 1991, but was revised to ensure relevancy to recent developments in child care in British Columbia. The information gathered was comparable over time with previous provincial child care surveys, for the purpose of analyzing trends, including but not limited to: the number and types of facilities and spaces, enrolment, fees, subsidies, staffing and use of government programs.
