    Child Care 2020 National Conference 2014


    CCSD Sponsors ChildCare2020 National Conference 2014

    View this email in your browser


    ChildCare2020, November 13-15, in Winnipeg.

    Many will recall Canada’s 1989 pledge to ending child poverty by 2000. Here we are, decades later, and our child poverty rate is not better. It is worse. One million kids are now living poverty in Canada. As a Canadian – and especially as a mother – this is as disturbing as it is unacceptable in our rich nation.

    Based on OECD statistics, Denmark is showing the way with investments in early childhood education at 2 per cent of GDP. Countries across the OECD are moving in this direction, seeing the value of early education for the well-being, health and success of their populations and, therefore, their nations.

    Canada spends 0.25 per cent of GDP by comparison and ranks last among OECD nations in this area.
