IF WE WANT TO CHANGE OUR PROVINCE’S FUTURE, OUR CHILDREN NEED TO HAVE A STRONG START. PROVIDING A SOLID FOUNDATION TO HELP PREPARE CHILDREN FOR SUCCESS IS AN ECONOMIC INVESTMENT THAT, OVER TIME, WILL MAKE OUR PROVINCE BETTER FOR ALL.

Together, we need to make sure every child is ready upon entering Primary. Early childhood education and development has exceptionally high returns to society as a whole. The early years of a child’s life are critical determinants of life-long physical, emotional, social, cognitive and language development. Pre-school programming also enables more parents to access employment opportunities and, over the long term, improves youth participation in the workforce.
