Families for ECEs: Family friendly rally for action

Families for ECEs - Nova Scotia
Location:
TBD
CA
Event date: 
9 Jul 2022 - 10:30am

ECEs have been taking care of our families at poverty-level wages for decades - it's time we get loud and take care of theirs.

Save the date! Child Care Now Nova Scotia is bringing families together to get loud for ECEs at a family-friendly event to remind government that we cannot continue to wait to rollout the compensation framework and benefits packages. ECEs need action now.

The advocacy cannot continue to fall on the back of ECEs alone. The Child Care Now Nova Scotia Parent Working group meets again on Monday, June 20th to continuing planning this event.

Early childhood educator compensation survey

Early Childhood Educator Compensation Survey (for ECEs who work in funded regulated child care programs)

The Province of Nova Scotia entered into an historic 5-year $605 million funding agreement with the federal government to transform early learning and child care in Nova Scotia. As we move towards a Canada-wide system, we need a consistent and standardized approach to licensed child care. Importantly, we also need a compensation framework that recognizes the important role that early childhood educators play in creating quality early learning and child care.

When this work was announced, we made a commitment to keep the sector informed and to provide opportunities for you to be involved. Work is underway to develop a new compensation framework for early childhood educators in funded regulated child care and we are informing and involving you in this process.

The purpose of this survey is to seek your feedback to assist and inform the development of the compensation framework. Your responses will remain confidential and only aggregated results will be shared with the Early Learning and Child Care Engagement Table as this work moves forward. A summary of aggregated results will also be shared on our website at a future date.

The survey will remain open until midnight on June 3, 2022. It will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.
