The Board supports the use of schools, grounds, and equipment for organized student and teacher activities, at the discretion of the school principal.

The Board also supports the use of schools by licensed child care providers, as part of British Columbia's Early Years Strategy, an eight-year commitment to support early childhood development and help families with licensed child care.

Therefore, in accordance with the School Act, the Board of Education promotes the use of board­ owned property by licensed child care providers between the hours of 7:00 am and 6:00 pm on weekdays, provided the space is not required for K-12 education programs, early learning programs, or extra-curricular activities.
