Affordable child care is coming to Alberta!

We at Norwood Child and Family Resource Centre were delighted to hear yesterday’s federal-provincial announcement on bringing affordable childcare to Alberta. As a community non-profit that works exclusively with families of young children, we know how critical this agreement is, particularly to low-income families.

We are thrilled that the agreement includes funding for thousands of new licensed childcare spaces over the next few years, as well as funding for early childhood educators (ECEs). Well-qualified, educated ECEs are critical to the health, safety, and development of the babies and children entrusted to their care.
