Oaklands Community Association’s Out-Of-School Care (OSC) and Little Acorn day care has been providing Emergency child care services to Essential Workers since April 13th, 2020. Beginning May 1st, 2020, these services will temporarily be provided at only a $10 fee per day.
Cindy Allen, Oaklands Child Care Service Manager, said that “with the current health crisis creating financial hardships for families, providing care for children of Essential Workers is important and we are proud to be able to help them even more by alleviating any financial strain”.
These services are available to both In-House and General Public Families for single day, full-week or full-month care. Priority will be given to those families in Tier 1; however, should space allow Tier 2 and Tier 3 families will be offered care as well. Little Acorn accepts children between 2.5 to 5 years old, and OSC accepts children that are 5+.
“On behalf of the Oaklands families and all those who use our services I want to thank the Ministry of Children and Family Development; Victoria Foundation and all the Rapid Relief Fund supporters for their generous contributions which make these fee reductions possible.” - Christopher Holt, Executive Director

Our goal is to improve your quality of life in the Oaklands neighbourhood by increasing social inclusion, making recreation affordable and accessible, and creating a lively neighbourhood through special events!
The Oaklands Sunset Market runs on Wednesday evenings during the summer from 4:30 to 8:30 pm at the Oaklands Community Centre. The Market is a free, weekly community celebration featuring over 40 local food growers and producers, artisans, crafters, live music, weekly beer garden, and a space for the community to come together and meet their neighbours.
In advance of the City of Victoria's Official Neighbourhood Plan (ONP) Development process, the Oaklands Community Association has been tasked to provide the foundation for the plan.
We have recruited and struck an ONP Committee and will be engaging our neighbours in a variety of planning and feedback processes to ensure a neighbourhood plan that represents the will of the neighbourhood.
Out-of-school care and licensed camps provide a positive atmosphere in which children can develop self-esteem, confidence, and social awareness. While ensuring the kids have a great time, our focus is to encourage and facilitate physical and mental well-being. Our staff offer a warm, safe, and welcoming environment so your child’s time here is fun and memorable. Your child will enjoy lots of fun adventures and create lasting memories. You, as a parent, can rest assured your child is in a safe, warm, and nurturing environment.
Entrust your little ones to our fully qualified Early Childhood Educators (ECEs). At Little Acorn Care Centre, we offer either theme–based or emergent curriculums within a full day preschool program for children ages 2.5–5 years.
Your support and contributions will enable us to improve our services including programs like community dinners and children's breakfast programs.
The OCA acknowledges the privilege of serving our community on the ancestral territories of the Lekwungen-speaking Peoples, in particular the Songhees and Esquimalt First Nations, whose rich relationship with the land remains today.
