East Kelowna 2023/2024 availability update

October 2023

We are currently at capacity, our current projections show that we will remain at capacity until August 2024 with no scheduled availability between now and next September. Our 3-5 years program typically remains at capacity year round. When spaces become available in the 3-5 years group, they are typically filled with existing families (children) that are aging out of our under 36 month program. We seldom go to the waitlist in East Kelowna for the 3-5 years group.

Currently we are working with requests we received in the second half of 2021 (or earlier) and possibly early 2022 at the latest. It will be 2024 for spaces in 2025 before we are looking at requests we received in 2022. Due to the number of families on our waitlist, only families that we potentially have space for will be contacted.

Please go to this link to provide feedback to the province – https://childhoodconnections.ca/advocacy/ Due to the current political environment towards private daycares all plans for expansion or to create additional spaces are on hold.
