The winners of the 2022 mid-term elections will be positioned to make public policy decisions that directly impact the child care sector. Join the Child Care Aware of America Policy and Advocacy team for an update about the impact of the mid-term elections on child care policy and a preview of advocacy strategies for the new post-election landscape.
In this first workshop, educators will be introduced to the Canada Wide Early Learning and Child Care plan, the new social and economic policy for Ontario intended to offer affordable, accessible, and quality care for families with young children. The onset of this policy invites consideration of new guidelines and regulations for those utilizing and working within the Early Years Sector and is set to unravel over the next five years. Through guided conversation, educators will identify, discuss and interpret key policy components that influence our profession's day-to-day practice.
