EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION
IS A GAME CHANGER

High quality early childhood education provides crucial developmental benefits giving ALL children the opportunity to thrive throughout their lives. Not only does ECE benefit children, it also benefits Canadian society and the economy.

Over the last 20 years since the Honourable Margaret McCain and Dr. Fraser Mustard released the first Early Years Study in 1999, Early Years Studies 1, 2 and 3 have influenced far‑reaching government action including: 

  • Enhanced parental leave, now up to 20 months
  • Full day kindergarten for 4 year olds in Ontario, Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia
  • Full day kindergarten for 5 year olds in Ontario, Prince Edward Island, British Columbia, Newfoundland
  • 40% of 4 year olds now receive ECE through public education
  • Triple the public funding for ECE across Canada
