Research clearly indicates that a child’s early years are critical to lifelong development. Providing children with a strong start in the early years will result in positive outcomes for families, communities and the province as a whole.
The Early Childhood Education Unit provides leadership and support to school divisions in the area of early learning for children up to age 8 years. Through a collaborative approach, the unit partners with school divisions, other government departments (provincial, federal), Early Learning and Child Care, educational stakeholder groups, and parents to promote developmentally appropriate programming and services that help to prepare children for successful school entry and optimal learning in the early years.
