To support our faculty and staff with balancing the demands of work and family, UBC has partnered with Kids & Company to provide you with another option for child care.
These services are exclusive to employees of corporate members and the cost will depend on the service(s) you select. For example, the emergency child care package currently costs $350 for 15 visits per year per child.
Kids & Company has several locations in Metro Vancouver and surrounding areas, with plans for expansion in the coming years.
