Child Care Worker and Early Childhood Educator Appreciation Day 2017

 The Ontario Coalition for Better Child Care is proud to present the 17th annual Early Childhood Educator and Child Care Worker Appreciation Day which will be held on Wednesday, October 25th 2017.  

Due to the overwhelming success of the last two years, we are asking community members who are ordering to either pay the small fee for materials or better yet, become a member of the OCBCC!

Last year alone we sent out 20,000 buttons and posters across the province. This year we have created an order form for non-members BUT what better time to become a member of the OCBCC than now and receive all your materials for free.

For Non- Members Please order here

For Members Please order Here 

We are excepting orders through fax, email attachment and mail, We are only accepting Cash or Cheque for the Material orders for non-members.

On this day we recognize the hard work, meaningful care and continuous learning these educators provide children every day. 

This year’s theme “WE CREATE A BRIGHTER FUTURE” reminds us all of the important role early childhood educators and child care workers play in building strong and supported children, families and communities.

Le thème de cette année est Nous bâtissons un avenir brillant ! Ce thème nous rappelle le rôle important que jouent les éducatrices et éducateurs des services d’apprentissage et de garde des jeunes enfants à l’épanouissement de nos enfants, nos familles et nos collectivités. (french translation and poster will be available Sept 18th 2017 to preview)

Thank you to CUPE ONTARIO and our other partners for their continued support and guidance in creating the materials and helping us make sure everyone has access to them. 

Our poster and button design will be ready for reveal shortly and uploaded to this page. (Sept 18th 2017)
Until then please considering sharing, posting and giving thanks to the ECE's and Child Care Workers in your life.
