Endorse the strategy for recovery from COVID-19
Child care: essential now and always
COVID-19 has taught us many lessons about the value of public services, though few were put so clearly to the federal government as the importance of child care.
Federal and provincial governments seem to have gotten the message: if children aren’t cared for, the economy will remain shut.
We have an opportunity now not only to rebuild the child care sector but also to keep on building. Until we get a child care program.
Child Care Now’s Strategy for Recovery calls for a two phased federal approach: first provide funding to piece the child care sector back together following the pandemic, then continue that funding to move Canada towards a fully publicly funded system, in partnership with the provinces/territories and Indigenous governments and communities, so that all children and families can have access to affordable high quality early childhood education and child care.
