Excerpts from the fact sheet:
Auspice - who owns and operates child care - is one of the factors that makes a difference to the quality of early learning and care services. Along with other factors such as adequate funding and regulation, and well-trained staff, non-profit auspice is a key element that enhances quality in child care services.
Non-profit child care services exist to provide a service to the community without financial gain. The research in Canada and internationally is clear that non-profit child care generally serves children and families better.
