Description: In Fast Facts by Susan Prentice for the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, Prentice discusses the benefits of high quality childcare and why investing in it is a smart economic decision. She urges policy-makers in Manitoba to immediately re-examine the child care policy architecture, which currently dedicates too few resources, and also advises provinces to learn from Quebec who has expanded access, reduced fees, and increased staff training and remuneration.
