Childcare Studios

The Greater Victoria School District applied to the Ministry of Children and Families Development to create new Childcare spaces on a number of Greater Victoria School District properties.  The School District was successful in its applications and received funding for the following elementary school locations:

  • Braefoot
  • Campus View
  • Doncaster
  • Frank Hobbs
  • Macaulay
  • Oaklands
  • Tillicum
  • Victoria West
  • Eagle View
  • View Royal
  • George Jay
  • Marigold

(Site plans to be posted once finalized)

Each school location has been approved for new before and after school childcare spots and either new preschool or full-time childcare spots for various ages. All childcare and before and after care spots will be open to the school population first.  If all childcare and before and after school care spots are not filled by the school population they will be open to the surrounding community.  The District is still in the process of finalizing child care providers for each site and is not taking waitlist applications.

Please continue to visit our website for updates on construction, childcare providers, and waitlists.
