Shortage of before and after school daycare spaces in Club Kids is a health and safety hazard for the young kids in our Mission community. As young children walk home alone unsupervised to wait hours for their parents to commute home from work.

Shortage of before and after school daycare prevents parents from being able to work and earn an income or puts them in a hard spot to decide to leave their young children unsupervised in the school fields in the rain locked out of the school a long time before the morning school bell. 

The reality of a 6 hour school day and an 8 hour plus 2 hour commute work day leaves a large gap in time with a lack of childcare services. Most parents in Mission commute and work long hours.

Continually finding and organizing piecemeal childcare placing a tremendous stress and burden on parents which could easily be relieved with on site before and after school daycare programs.

The high cost of housing, both renting and owning, means mothers are not performing childcare as they must go to do paid work and earn an income to contribute to the high cost of living. Therefore who is providing childcare ?

For these reasons, we need Club Kids to expand its program to take care of more children equivalent to 25% of a school's student population, as well as adding morning before school daycare in all the elementary schools in Mission.

It is the mandate and responsibility of the Mission School Board in partnership with the Mission Leisure Center for the all around physical, social, emotional, and academic development of the young students which requires providing before and after school daycare, and increasing the nunber of daycare spaces on site at every elementary school as soon as possible.

Thank you for signing this petition.
