Childcare Support

Limited funding is available for workshop participants who are travelling with children and require day care services. BIRS daycare support will only cover the duration of the workshop, and extends to daycare facilities within the town of Okanagan, or to individuals hired by workshop participants to care for their children on the UBCO premises. Such hires should be made at the sole discretion of the participating guardian(s). BIRS is not affiliated with any of the services listed above and cannot make arrangements on behalf of a participant, nor does it accept liability if terms of service are not met.

**Please be advised that BIRS requires pre-approval for daycare support**
Requests must be placed at least six weeks prior to the start of the workshop and may require up to two weeks for processing. Approved participants will receive partial support, based on the availability of funding, after the workshop ends and upon submission of receipts and valid proof of payment.

Participants of upcoming workshops should contact both their workshop organizers and the BIRS staff (UBCO Events Coordinator or [email protected]) to obtain approval and for additional details of this program.
