Recognizing that parents navigating Canada's hit-and-miss patchwork of regulated and unregulated child care are on their own, a comprehensive website for parents has been developed by the Childcare Resource and Research Unit and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers. findingqualitychildcare.ca provides detailed information about child care in each province/territory; key regulations; which kinds of child care are required to be regulated; how to recognize good quality and how improve the chances of accessing it. It includes a 20 minute video showing good quality in centres, provincial/territorial search tools and contacts, "dos and don'ts", and a checklist to use to help assess potential child care. In English and French. Read full blog here.
