    By signing below you are showing support for the professional pay for professional work campaign and will receive updates! 

    The overarching goal of this campaign is to address the long-standing issue of low and inequitable compensation for early childhood educators (ECEs) in Ontario. We are calling on the government to fund professional pay for all ECEs in Ontario regardless of where they work. Professional pay should reflect ECEs’ specialized training, the value of their work and their participation in continuous professional learning.

    No ECE should have to work for less than a professional wage and all ECEs should be recognized for their professional qualifications and practice.

    For more information on the campaign please see http://www.aeceo.ca/professional_pay_for_professional_work

    The proposed changed will decrease quality, increase the cost and does not provide children with enough proper supervision. There will also be more injuries as walkers and non walkers are going to be in the same room. 12 month and 2 year olds require very different needs and will not be meet with the proposed changes.
