Early Childhood Education Report

Atkinson Centre, OISE, University of Toronto

The Early Childhood Education Report monitors provincial and territorial systems to evaluate the quality of provincial/territorial early childhood education. The first report was launched in Early Years Study 3 in 2011 and is released every three years using a 15-point scale.  Results are populated from detailed profiles of each jurisdiction. The report is organized around five categories: governance, funding, access, quality, and monitoring with 19 benchmarks forming a common set of minimum criteria that contribute to the delivery of quality ECE programming.
