A Paradigm Shift: Early Learning and Child Care in Nova Scotia

The Canada-Wide Early Learning and Child Care Plan has brought attention to the importance of investing in a universal, publicly funded early learning and child care system. For Nova Scotia, this will bring 1,500 new not-for-profit child care spaces beginning this fall, reduced fees for parents, and a strategy to invest in tuition and training for early childhood educators. These changes are tracking towards a federal vision of $10-a-day high-quality and inclusive early learning and care across the country by 2026. Dr. Jessie Lee McIsaac, Canada Research Chair in Early Childhood: Diversity and Transitions, joins Research over Coffee to discuss the significant paradigm shift that is required to move toward a publicly funded early learning and child care system that supports families and children and helps to grow the early childhood sector. 

The Research Over Coffee webinar series is hosted on Zoom. 

Thursday, March 10, 2022 | 8:30 a.m. - 9:15 a.m. (AST)
