Wednesday October 16: Chalk It Up for Child Care
At your child care centre, in your neighbourhood, or at the local park – chalk the walk for child care. Take a photo of your chalk drawings and send them to us and post them on social media.
Thursday October 17: Put Decent Work in the Platform
The federal political parties need to understand that they can’t create child care spaces without supporting Decent Work for early childhood educators. Use our online tool to send the federal leaders a message that Canada needs a Workforce Strategy for Child Care.
Friday October 18: Friday Call Out for Child Care
Ask your local candidates what they are doing to support child care. At the door step, at local all-candidates meetings, over the phone, or in an email, ask your local candidates what they are doing to support child care.
