Here are some conversation starters. Please post these in visible areas. We will also be hosting an event for AECEO/OCBCC/TCBCC community members to empower you to use the skills and knowledge you already have to connect with your community and help affect change. This session will be on November 15th at 7PM. Here is the event poster.

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!

Let's make it visible! Please wear your Worth More buttons from Appreciation Day or order some stickers. Here is the link to the order form for stickers. Please order early so we can get them out in time. Here is what they look like-
