The Vancouver Society of Children’s Centres (VSOCC) has been serving families with young children since 1995. In partnership with many others, we have worked to create a vibrant community for families.  Today, VSOCC is the largest single-purpose organization providing non-profit child care in British Columbia, and is one of the largest providers of infant & toddler care in Western Canada.

Our Vision

Empowering children and families to reach their full potential and achieve life-long success.

Our Mission

To be leaders working with government and communities in the development and delivery of high quality child care.


Life-long Learning
Children are capable, competent, naturally inquisitive and learn best through play. We nurture children’s natural desire to wonder and learn, and create safe learning environments that provide endless opportunities to explore, experiment, and meet their fullest potential.  Educators are professional, qualified, reflective role models and co-constructors of learning who continuously challenge themselves to grow alongside children and families.

Diversity and Inclusion
We embrace diversity and create environments of acceptance, respect, understanding and inclusion.  We commit to learn, understand and appreciate each person’s unique attributes, abilities, and cultural history and ensure these are recognized and valued in our programs and work places.

Employee Well-being
We care deeply about our people and make every effort to bring out the best in each other. Teamwork, trust and employee well-being are vital to a positive workplace.   We support and encourage each other when things are challenging or difficult. We are dedicated to professional and personal growth and invite opportunities to learn together.

Strong Partnerships
Trust is the foundation of every relationship and we are defined by the quality of our connections with children, families, government and community partners. Families are the first and primary teachers and caregivers who have the most important role in promoting their children’s well-being, learning and development. We engage families and community partners in creating a feeling of connectivity, belonging and support.
