Equity, Access, & Quality in Early Childhood Education & Care
June 1, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
The Summer Institute is an annual collaboration between the School of Early Childhood at George Brown College and the Atkinson Centre for Society and Child Development at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education/University of Toronto. The Institute strives to offer timely information to inform research, policy and practice. As Canada embarks on a new early years strategy, the Institute looks at the conflict between increasing equitable access to early childhood programs while maintaining quality.
Across Canada and around the Globe policymakers are looking to expand children’s access to early childhood education. Join Canadian and international experts as they discuss how approaches to expanding access while maintaining program quality; balancing the needs of 0-3 year olds with programs for 4-6 year olds; and addressing children’s rights to early education with parents need for child care. Plus workshops and poster sessions featuring leading edge approaches to early years practice and policy.
