Early Childhood Education Report 2014: It’s Time for Preschool

Nov 17, 2014 Report

Source: Atkinson Centre

In Canada, education and child care fall primarily within the jurisdiction of provinces and territories, although there is a long history of federal involvement both through transfers to individuals and to provincial and territorial governments. While the federal government has been an inconsistent player in early childhood policy, it has influenced provincial and territorial programs and priorities.

The Early Childhood Education Report 2014: It’s Time for Preschool released by the Atkinson Centre at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education/University of Toronto is the second status update in three years. It measures provincial and territorial performance based on different criteria including investments in early education and child care programs and children’s access. It also compares Canada’s results to other developed economies.
