Child Care Worker and Early Childhood Educator Appreciation Day
October 8 @ 12:00 am - October 29 @ 12:00 am
Child Care Worker and Early Childhood Educator Appreciation Day recognizes the education, skills, commitment and dedication of Early Childhood Educators and Child Care Staff. The Ontario Coalition for Better Child Care (OCBCC), the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) and our other labour partners representing child care workers across Ontario are asking that a day each year be proclaimed as Child Care Worker & Early Childhood Educator Appreciation Day in accordance with the attached resolution. Many groups are recognized by way of Municipal Resolution.
Such a day allows the community to recognize the important work of child care workers and to acknowledge the contributions that child care workers make in the lives of community members. Children, families and communities benefit from the work of child care workers. Child care also contributes to the economic life of communities. Research shows the many economic benefits accrued from affordable, accessible, licensed, high quality child care.
