From vision to action: Early childhood education and care in 2020

Childcare Resource and Research Unit BRIEFing NOTES banner

November 2008

This BRIEFing NOTE presents a vision for what an universal early childhood education and care system in Canada might look like from the program to the policy level. It explores the potential for Canada to move from a patchwork of disjointed programs - many of them of mediocre quality -to a comprehensive high quality system and suggests changes that would put such a system in place.

This paper reviews two bodies of research. The first pertains to identification of threats to children's optimal development and the second examines the effectiveness of different types of targeted programs intended to enhance the development of at-risk children. Many variables that put children at risk for developmental problems occur in both lone- and two-parent families and across all income levels. The current practice of restricting programs for at-risk children to specific neighbourhoods inevitably means the exclusion of many at-risk children.
