“The Provincial Child Care Council is a vital partner as we continue to create a universal system that will give families access to affordable, quality and inclusive child care in every part of the province,” said Chen in a statement.

“As we enter the fourth year of our 10-year Childcare BC plan, we will continue to draw on the council’s expertise, which will help us build on the steps we have taken so far to make life better and more affordable for families.”

Kozlowski has an Early Childhood Education diploma, is a representative for the Nelson Early Years Advisory Council and secretary for the West Kootenay ECEBC Branch.

Her term began Feb. 10 and will run through to Dec. 31, 2022.
