The Province published a fabulous article called "A teachers' strike survival guide for B.C. parents"
They provide a great list of options to keep the kids busy for the duration of the Teachers Strike;
Richmond Oval has programs for kids 6 to 12. Burnaby 8 Rinks Arena has hockey and sport camps, Coquitlam’s Young Actors Project has acting classes, Grouse Mountain has ski and snowboard lessons, the Vancouver Aquarium will have programs, and the Director’s Cut Workshops are holding film classes in Vancouver. Vancouver’s Hillcrest Community Centre is holding soccer camps. North Vancouver’s Northlands Golf Course has day programs. Check your local rec centre for other options.
Where can I find child care?
The Child Care Resource and Referral Program of B.C. can offer parents lists of child-care providers. Professional services like Nannies on Call can be helpful. Nannies on Call’s Silvana Felix says they can provide service throughout Metro Vancouver with 36 hours notice. B.C. high schoolers will also be out of class, and a local teen could babysit youngsters.
Where can I find child-care listings online?
On Craigslist, licensed and unregulated babysitters and stay-at-home parents are offering services. Parents should use caution and be sure to ask for reference checks. Read more: http://www.theprovince.com/news/teachers+strike+survival+guide+parents/6247731/story.html#ixzz1oG7fXMPc
