The OCBCC has publicly released our submission to the Early Learning Advisor Charles Pascal with a vision full day learning for 4 and 5 year olds as a part of a comprehensive child care system in Ontario. That means affordable care for families, child care services for every child in Ontario and a significant wage increases for Early Childhood Educators across the province.
The Toronto Star wrote about our vision for early learning and child care in the article: "Single system for child care encouraged":
"The province's plan to introduce full-day learning for 4- and 5-year-olds starting in 2010 is a perfect opportunity for Ontario to turn its patchwork of child-care services into a single system run by the education ministry, says a coalition representing child-care workers and elementary school teachers."
