Poster - Programs need full & sufficient funding to meet true per diem costs, now.- We know that parents might not know about per diem, but what better way to start the conversation?
Poster - After an average of 3 years, ECEs are forced to quit due to lack of decent work.- This is a great way to start a conversation about the importance of stability and consistency to build high quality care and learning environments for children.
Poster - Half of ECEs in Ontario make less than $20/hour. - We recognize some make less and some make more. What a great opportunity to begin the conversation of why that is and how we can change it.
Poster - 2 out of 3 ECEs work more than one job to make ends meet.- Our communities might not know that many child care workers and ECEs need more than one job to live. How can we expect them to provide high quality care and learning experiences if they are experiencing food insecurity or housing issues? Let's get the word out!
Sample agenda for your day of action- Here are a few sample agendas for how your day of action could look. COMING SOON
