Lax Kw'alaams launches Child Care Needs Survey

The Lax Kw'alaams Band is looking towards the future and whether there is a need for enhanced child-care services in the community and as part of their initial steps they currently have launched a community wide survey to determine what level of need may be in place.

As part of their engagement with the community, the survey is now available in two formats, online and a paper version that is available at the Lax Kw'alaams Administration office.

The online version can be found here.

As a follow up to the introduction of the survey, a Lax Kw'alaams representative will endeavour to visit each home in the community between November 12 and December 9th to be sure that everyone has had the opportunity to complete the survey if they are interested in the initiative.

Among some of the questions to be found as part of the program, How many children each respondent has, when do you require child care, how much do you currently pay for child care, your location of residence whether Lax Kw'alaams, Prince Rupert or other, and what do you consider the most important thing when choosing a child care setting for your child.

Some of the background to the survey and what will be done with the information can be reviewed below:

To help generate some interest in the program, three gift certificates will be drawn for at the end of the survey period with certificates of 300, 200 and 100 dollars to be awarded for completed surveys.

The survey period ends on December 9th.
