The 16th Annual Summer Institute on Early Childhood Development

Accounting for Quality in the Early Childhood Workforce

June 17, 2019
George Brown College, Waterfront Campus, 51 Dockside Drive, Toronto, ON


Key elements of defining and sustaining an ECE workforce 

We enter a period of great opportunities for the ECE workforce and equally great challenges. The demand for ECEs reaches beyond licensed child care expanding career opportunities but also contributes to fragmenting the sector. Our panel looks at the elements necessary for a professional workforce including recognition and standards, ongoing professional development, quality monitoring and advocacy. The panel is followed by facilitated roundtable discussions.
