    Share your Story - Carolyn Ferns

    SYCCS_Launch-2.pngThe child care story project is an important part of the AECEO’s Professional Pay & Decent Work Campaign. Our goal is to collect and share stories from across the province to highlight the need for quality affordable early years and child care programs where registered early childhood educators and staff are well supported with professional pay and decent work

    Our first video is from Carolyn Ferns.  Carolyn first started her career as an ECE working in an infant/toddler room when she realized that there was an overwhelming amount of families unable to afford licensed child care and that the ECE profession was extremely underpaid.  Carolyn then decided to return to school to further her career in ECE research so that she could make a change.  

    Everyone has a child care story to share: we are asking RECEs, early years staff, parents, children and community members to share their child care stories in support of the AECEO’s Professional Pay & Decent Work campaign. 

    You can send your completed story to inquiries@aeceo.ca and/or share on social media and be sure to tag the AECEO and your MPP along with Minister Indira Naidoo-Harris @MPPIndiraNH and Premier Kathleen Wynne @Kathleen_Wynne

Despite the necessary role of the CECE in professionalization, we know that RECE wages still do not adequately reflect the value of their work or their level of education and many experience financial hardship. This is why we believe it is in the best interest of our members to focus on our successful advocacy campaign for improved wages and working conditions for all RECEs.
