Join Pacific Immigrant Resource Society (PIRS) as they celebrate three years of Pop-Up Child Care, our pop-up childcare partners!

Pop-Up Child Care is a social enterprise that provides on-demand, on-site, child care services and connects immigrant and refugee women with child care training and employment. At this crucial point of Pop-Up Child Care’s journey, they welcome educators, practitioners, decision-makers, and all those invested in the child care system to explore:

  • How innovative child care services and training programs can improve service delivery
  • How child care providers can work together to create change
  • Funding streams that support the creation of welcoming child care spaces for working parents, new immigrants and those with language barriers

The 90 minute event will weave presentations from the Pop-Up Child Care team, testimonials from parents, and commentary from leaders in BC’s child care sector with small group interactions, and collaborative problem solving.
