History

The Vancouver City Creche was established in 1910 by the Associated Charities to provide a daycare centre for the children of working women. In 1912 the Creche became a public institution under the Health Department and new quarters were provided. In 1917 the Creche building was transferred to the Infant's Hospital and Creche was moved into the former Old People's Home on Cambie Street. In 1932 the Creche was closed and the activities taken over by the foster home plan of the Vancouver Day Nursery Association.
