The AECEO's Professional Pay & Decent Work Campaign has been successfully engaging and organizing hundreds of RECEs, early years staff, parents and community members in Ontario. This Campaign Tool Kit will support local Professional Pay Communities of Practice, early years and child care programs, individual RECEs/staff/parents and ECE students as they engage in campaign actions. As the campaign continues to grow we will add more tool kit items to support actions and engagement across the province.
Early childhood educators, staff, parents, children and community members can work together to shape the future of Ontario’s early years and child care system.
Tool Kit Items:
The provincial election is just around the corner and it is an exciting time for the early years and child care sector. AECEO is proud to partner with the Ontario Coalition for Better Child Care (OCBCC) on this important election campaign to ensure that child care stays on the minds of voters and on the political agenda. This non-partisan campaign aims to engage voters and candidates on the issue of quality affordable child care in the upcoming Ontario elections.
The OCBCC has 3 Big Ideas to Transform Child Care in Ontario. You can print the poster to post in your staff room, on parent boards, or hand it out at all candidates meetings, debates, local events, conferences, etc.
Help keep voters informed on child care issues with these quick facts!
Key messages can be used by anyone who wants to support the Universal Child Care IS Possible campaign. Key messages can be used during one-on-one conversations, when talking to parents, colleagues, local candidates or media about child care in the upcoming election.
We know that child care matters to everyone. If you support the Universal Child Care IS Possible campaign you can hang this sign in your window to signal to candidates that child care matters to you.
During the campaign we'll be relying on social media to help spread the word! Don't forget to follow us on social media and use the following hashtags: #UniversalChildCareISPossible #ONPoli #ChildCareNow #ECEPower #DecentWork #Vote
