Saskatchewan has an agreement – now what?
A policy roadmap to forge ahead …….
The roadmap is the collaborative effort of six partners: the Canadian Child Care Federation and its Saskatchewan Leaders’ Caucus, Child Care Now and its Saskatchewan Chapter, the Saskatchewan Early Childhood Association (SECA) and the Muttart Foundation. Its focus is on regulated early learning
and child care, although the roadmap partners recognize the importance of the other forms of early childhood provision delivered through the school system, and acknowledge the need to better integrate these services with community-based child care as the province builds its early learning and care system
The Roadmap to a Quality Early Learning and Child Care System in Saskatchewan is intended to engage stakeholders, community groups and policy makers in meaningful discussions about the essential elements of a quality system, and the initial policy actions needed to develop it.
This roadmap outlines crucial actions needed to build a quality ELCC system in Saskatchewan and identifies key questions that the provincial government should consider and address as it develops its implementation plan under the Canada-wide Early Learning and Child Care Agreement. The roadmap is intended to be a forward-looking document that provides information to stakeholders to support their
meaningful participation in discussions about the core issues central to system building.
