Campaigning works! Recently after months of organizing and advocacy work, the child care community won a small victory in ensuring that the Ministry of Education back away from their proposed regulation changes to age ranges ratios and group sizes. We could not have done this without all of your signatures, voices and actions! Now that we’ve told the government what we don’t want, let’s tell them about the change we do want to see: a real child care system for Ontario!
Child Care Worker and Early Childhood Educator Appreciation Day is Wednesday October 26, 2016. Order your free buttons and posters by October 14th to receive them in time.
This year's theme is Shaping Our Future to highlight the special role that ECEs and child care staff play in the lives of children, families and communities. Our theme also speaks to the importance of the early learning and care workforce in shaping our own future, and the future of our sector.
