Sudbury, October 24, 2006
On October 25th, the Greater Sudbury community will officially appreciate the Child Care worker and Early Childhood Educator. At 10:30 am, during a celebration at the Walden Day Care Centre, Mayor David Courtemanche will pass the resolution declaring October 25th Child Care Worker and Early Childhood Educator Appreciation Day. Celebrations will also be held in early learning and child care program across our city and province.
The Ontario Coalition for Better Child Care, along with Labour organization, Teachers Federations and local child care centres will be celebrating the valuable role and contributions of Early Childhood Educators and child care workers across the province. With over 90 early learning and child care sites in Greater Sudbury, it is important to recognize the influence, dedication and commitment of Greater Sudbury child care workers to children and their families.
Trained and knowledgeable child care staff is the most important element in quality child care. Further, recent studies show that child care providers play a key role in shaping children’s social, physical, emotional and cognitive development.
