A call to action from the Association of Early Childhood Educators, Ontario, and the Ontario Coalition for Better Child Care

Ontario deserves better! ECEs, early years staff, and operators have been long ignored by the Province. During the closure period we asked for communication, transparency, and consultation in developing a reopening plan. We didn’t get it – despite the OCBCC and AECEO Report and Recommendations, From Reopening to Recovery.

Children, families, and educators deserve safe, quality programs when they reopen – and this takes funding and time. The Province’s ‘reopening plan’ missed the mark. We demand and deserve better.

Join the Association of Early Childhood Educators Ontario, the Ontario Coalition for Better Child Care, the Atkinson Centre for Society and Child Development, and your colleagues from across Ontario on Friday, June 12 at 11 am for a Virtual Rally for Child Care – we will raise our collective voice and take collective action together. Registration is to participate in the Virtual Rally via Zoom, however space is limited on Zoom and once registration is full you can still participate as the Virtual Rally will be broadcasting live through AECEO Facebook page.

Please Register HERE

If registration is full please go to the AECEO facebook page at 11 am on June 12th to watch live.

And you can tell Premier Ford and Minister Lecce that the Ontario government is setting child care up to fail in reopening by signing on to the Ontario Coalition for Better Child Care’s open letter HERE.
