Early Childhood Education and Care in Canada Report

The Childcare Resource and Research Unit (CRRU)  has just released Early childhood education and care in Canada 2016. This is its 11th compilation of Canada-wide data on child care and related early childhood and family programs. “It considers child care space provision, budget allocations, and service delivery information in the 2014-2016 period, comparing these to previous years. The report provides detailed provincial/territorial descriptive information on kindergarten and child care programs (such as teacher/educator training, ratios, group/class size, pedagogy and governance) as well as pertinent demographic data such as the number of children and mothers’ employment rates. It also offers a Canada-wide overview of how ECEC services are organized, the federal role, Indigenous ECEC services, information on maternity and parental leave and new developments through 2017. The report is primarily based on administrative data provided by provincial/territorial ECEC officials but also includes data from Statistics Canada and other current data and research.” (Child Care Resource and Research Unit)
