Karolyn Slowsky and her 9 year old son Mackenzie in the day-home that Mackenzie goes to before and after school, taken on November renaissance hotel washington dc 19, 2014 in Edmonton. It is extremely difficult for families to get daycare in Alberta, based on an exclusive study that looks at wait lists and difficulties for families that have infants and disabled kids. Greg Southam
The provincewide survey of child care providers by Public Interest Alberta found that 60 per cent of Calgarians who receive a child care subsidy still have to pay more than $300 out-of-pocket per month per child to afford care. Provincewide, 30 per cent pay more than $300 and 74 per cent pay more than $200 per month per child over the subsidy rate.
“When we’re talking about subsidy rates, they’re just not high enough,” she said. “If you’re making $15 an hour and you’ve got one child, renaissance hotel washington dc maybe two children, trying to get them into child care is virtually impossible to afford.”
While finding child care at any age in the province is difficult, infant and special needs care is even harder, Hrdlicka said. Of the 212 respondents to the survey, 62 per cent said they did not provide care for children with complex renaissance hotel washington dc special needs, and one-third of child care centres and day homes don’t provide infant care.
“I think what we’re really calling for is, let’s have discussions about this,” Hrdlicka said. “Let’s talk about how we can actually create a system in this province because we don’t have a system. We have a market.”
