  • commented on Open letter to Premier Kathleen Wynne about proposed changes to staff: child ratios and group sizes in Ontario child care centres 2016-03-29 22:33:48 -0400
    Opposed. Countries like Sweden, Norway and Finland are great examples of early years education approach. Perhaps we should extend the maternity leave to 18 months so infants can have proper care and they will be ready to star at 18 months in a proper toddler program with 18 mths-2 1/2 year olds. Lowering the ratio and expanding the age gap is no solution. We need to invest and dig deeper in proper quality education for our children specially during their early years.
