Essential Childcare at Kits House


Temporary childcare is available to Essential Service Workers during the COVID-19 Pandemic. You do not need to have been previously enrolled in one of our programs to register in order to access this care if you are an Essential Worker. Care is available to the following workers listed here.

Registration in this program is only for the duration that the COVID-19 Pandemic is occurring. Once the pandemic is over your spot is no longer secured, and will be returned to the family previously occupying the space.  



Kits House – 2305 West 7th Ave, Vancouver

Date & Time

Monday to Friday

8am – 6pm


Children must be aged 2.5-12 years.  

For School Aged Children in Grade 1 and up an exemption from licensing is required to register in the program, Kits House will facilitate the process of receiving an exemption.  

A referral number from Westcoast Childcare Resource Centre is required – Kits House can assist you in receiving a referral number.  


As part of our additional funding from the Province we are required to prioritize the following workers: 

Tier 1 (highest priority): employed in Health and Health Services, Social Services, Law Enforcement, First Responders, and Emergency Response. For child care, Tier 1 also includes children referred by MCFD and Delegated Aboriginal Agency social workers.  

Tier 2 (second priority): all other occupations not included in Tier 1 that are listed in the Essential Service Workers list.
