3 Executive Summary From January to March 2013, service providers and parents were invited to provide feedback on their perceptions of child and family friendliness on the North Shore as it relates to children ages As part of this process, 372 parents from the District of West Vancouver gave their feedback via an online survey. Key findings from parents in the District of West Vancouver include: There are play areas and parks that are well-maintained in West Vancouver; however, there is a need for the creation of more parks with play equipment for a range of ages. There are upgrades to parks needed in some areas (e.g., Ambleside). Additional factors that would enhance the play areas and parks are covered areas that offer protection from the sun and rain, safer routes to parks, and stroller accessible trails. Overall there exist welcoming places in West Vancouver where parents of young children can meet one other. The creation of more child and familyfriendly coffee shops and restaurants would be welcomed by parents. Greater programming in the evenings and on the weekends, more multifamily and multi-generational activities, as well as access to drop-in childcare would enhance family support services. There is a range of early learning and childcare programs in West Vancouver that are of high quality. Challenges for families include access to some highly desirable programs due to limited spaces and the high costs of programs. Some transportation issues appear to be in need of significant attention. The biggest area of need was the creation of sidewalks in many areas in which there are currently none. Additional challenges are limited access to adequate bus shelters, safety concerns at school drop-off and pick-up zones and frequency of speeding by drivers. Overall, health services are seen as a relative strength on the North Shore. As in the rest of B.C., there are challenges with having access to a regular family doctor. Recreation and community services are seen as quite strong in West Vancouver with a wide variety of programming available. In particular, library services are perceived to be very strong. Enhancements to these services would include more programs that allow children to explore their own and different cultures as well as more availability of programs that quickly fill up at the recreation centres (e.g., swimming). While some local businesses have made efforts to make their business more child and family friendly, there is room for growth in this area. Paying attention to aspects such as adding features that make shopping with a small child easier would be welcomed by parents (e.g., parking for parents with young children, having free play areas in all malls for children, etc.). Parents experiences in the workplace vary a great deal with respect to how supportive they experience employers 3 P a g e

4 to be as they negotiate work-life balance. Many parents indicate that they do not work on the North Shore. Overall, parents are content with their housing situation. Approximately onethird of parents indicated that they do not live within a 10 minute walk of an elementary school. Based on the results of this survey, the District of West Vancouver is heading in the right direction in order to enhance factors that would make the community more child and family friendly. While some of the factors in need of attention require considerable financial investment and planning, others may be easier to implement through some changes in programming, enhancing transportation features, and public education around simple strategies that organizations and businesses can undertake to create an environment that is perceived to be child and family friendly. 4 C h i l d a n d F a m i l y F r i e n d l i n e s s o n t h e N o r t h S h o r e : D W V

5 Introduction In October 2011, the North Shore Congress, a forum of elected and appointed public officials, endorsed the Child and Family Friendly Community Charter. This Charter was in large part developed in response to data gathered through the Early Development Instrument (EDI) that indicated that a sizeable percentage of children on the North Shore are vulnerable as they enter Kindergarten (See Appendix A for an overview). The Charter outlines key actions to be undertaken on the North Shore in order to support the healthy development of young children and families. One of the action items of the Charter is: The North Shore Congress agrees to promote child friendly communities. In order to begin to examine the perceptions of the degree to which the North Shore is experienced as child and family friendly, it was decided community feedback was needed, both from parents and child and family service providers. 1 Given the significant differences in developmental needs across childhood and adolescence, this consultation focused on child and family friendliness as it relates to children ages Funds to undertake this work were raised at the Municipal level. The North Shore Neighbourhood House in partnership with North Shore Child Care Resource and Referral were asked to provide leadership for the project. This report focuses on the feedback gathered from parents in the District of West Vancouver. What is Child and Family Friendliness? It is a city s commitment to fulfilling children's rights to: Influence decisions about their city Express their opinions on the city they want Participate in family, community and social life Be protected from exploitation, violence and abuse Walk safely in the streets Meet friends and play Have green spaces for plants and animals Live in an unpolluted environment Participate in cultural and social events Be an equal citizen of their city with access to every service, regardless of ethnic origin, religion, income, gender or disability from: 1 Results of consultations with service providers are available in a separate report. 5 C h i l d a n d F a m i l y F r i e n d l i n e s s o n t h e N o r t h S h o r e : D W V

6 Snapshot of the District of West Vancouver The following is based on Statistics Canada 2011 Census data: Total population: 42,695 Number of children ages 0-6: 2,025 Number of children ages 7-12: 2,810 Number of children ages 13-19: 4,105 Percentage of the population ages 0-6: 4.7% Percentage of the population ages 7-12: 6.6% Percentage of the population ages 13-19: 9.6% Community Feedback Process Based on the Making your Community More Child and Youth Friendly: Focusing on the Early Years document, 2 survey items and rating scale, a parent survey for the current project was developed. While most items were taken directly from the document, some items were added and others adapted in order to best fit this project. The parent survey consisted of 52 items. Survey participants were invited to make additional comments after each section of the survey. The following child and family friendliness areas were of focus: Parks, fields, and open spaces Family support services Early learning and childcare Transportation Health Services Recreation and Community Services Workplaces Local Businesses Elementary schools Housing Parents were invited to complete an online survey from January to March A link for this survey was sent to service providers in order that they could pass the information on to the parents with whom they worked. The survey was also advertised through the North Vancouver and West Vancouver School Districts, and a link for the survey was put on the North Shore Neighbourhood House and North Shore Community Resources websites. 2 Society for Children and Youth of BC (2010).

14 Key Findings from Parents Aspects of Child and Family Friendliness that are in Need of Attention on the North Shore The following aspects of child and family friendliness were perceived to be in need of attention on the North Shore: Top Priority from the Perspective of Survey Participants based on more than 50% of participants giving the item a negative ( disagree ) rating. Covered areas for children to play under when it is raining. Safe routes for children to walk to school (e.g., walking school bus programs, safe and accessible walking paths). Second Highest Priorities from the Perspective of Survey Participants based on more than 30-39% of participants giving the item a negative ( disagree ) rating 7. Routes to the places (e.g., local park) that children and their parents/caregivers regularly go that are well marked, well lit and safely designed. Activities for multi-family and multi-generations that promote the concept of it takes a village to raise a child. Safe drop-off and pick-up areas around school sites. Third Highest Priorities from the Perspective of Survey Participants 8 based on more than 25-29% of participants giving the item a negative ( disagree ) rating. Natural shade or manmade cover that allows children and their parents/caregivers to be out of the direct sun while they play outside. Bus shelters that are easily accessible, stroller-friendly, and provide shelter from rain, wind etc. Things that make shopping easier for parents with young children (e.g., play areas, designated parking for those with young children, shopping carts with child restraint harnesses). 7 Note that there were no survey items for which 40-49% of participants gave a negative ( disagree ) rating. 8 26% of parents indicated that their home was more than a 10 minute walk to the nearest elementary school. Whether this is a large concern for parents, given that many children are cross-boundary, would require further examination. 14 C h i l d a n d F a m i l y F r i e n d l i n e s s o n t h e N o r t h S h o r e : D W V
