Ready for LifeReady for Life: A Socio-Economic Analysis of Early Childhood Education and Care, documents the role of early education in reducing intergenerational poverty by improving the future income prospects for children while lifting the labour participation of their mothers. The report by the Conference Board of Canada notes the importance of the duration in ECE attendance to child outcomes and recommends governments grow universal early education to three years while improving program quality. The report says Canada’s fiscal position allows for new investments and ECE should be a prime area given its high socio-economic returns.
