How It Works

How much it costs

Licensed flexible daycare in East Vancouver

As a result of the economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic, Buddings is closing our Broadway location as of June 26, 2020. We will be confining our service and operations to our Storybook Buddings location in East Van, with a new reduced membership fee for regular members ($50, instead of $60), and hours that get cheaper the more you attend – as little as $16!

12 hours – $210 (3hrs./week)

24 hours – $408 (2 x 3hrs./week)

39 hours – $624 (~9hrs./week)

Does Buddings accept subsidies?

Our license isn’t eligible for any form of financial relief. No subsidies for families, no operating fund grants, and most recently, none of the provincial childcare support announced for the COVID-19 pandemic.

How does the membership fee work?

Registered families submit a credit card for billing and on the 25th of the month, the $50 membership fee is applied for the following month.

Ex: May 25 for June membership.

To change or cancel, families submit a Change Form to membership@buddings.ca by the 15th of the month, for changes to take effect at the end of the month.

Ex: May 15 to cancel for June.

Registered families purchase and book hours through the website, and manage family profile pages online. Hours are allocated for the requested calendar month, and can be transferred to future months for a 2 hour fee.
