What are the major components of the strategy?
Caring For Our Future presents a vision for a planned, systematic approach for the growth and enhancement of regulated child care services throughout the province over the next 10 years. This strategy builds on existing programs and services and introduces new initiatives to address child care needs based on positive practice, cross-jurisdictional research and an extensive consultation process. The strategy represents a way forward with all partners working together to achieve a common vision for child care in Newfoundland and Labrador.
The strategy builds on three key pillars: quality, sufficiency and affordability. Each of these pillars contributes to a strong child care system, which will help to ensure that parents who choose regulated child care in Newfoundland and Labrador will have access to high quality, affordable services.
