The Board of Directors is very pleased to welcome Lyndsay Macdonald as the new Coordinator of the AECEO
Lyndsay is an RECE who has worked within the Ontario child care sector, both directly in programs and in policy research and advocacy. Lyndsay holds both a BA in Early Childhood Education and an MA in Early Childhood Studies from Ryerson University School of Early Childhood Studies. Lyndsay advocates passionately for child care policies that support all Canadian families and that put children at the centre of system building. At the heart of Lyndsay's advocacy work are the dedicated early childhood educators who provide high quality programs for children and families every single day. Lyndsay strongly believes that early childhood educators have the knowledge, the skills and the capacity to initiate positive change in the sector and she is committed to finding space for ECEs to mobilize and engage in policy discussions that impact our sector.
In these very exciting times of change in the Early Learning and Care field, Lyndsay’s extensive knowledge of the current landscape for our early learning professionals and her passion for influencing change that matters to ECEs and to children and families will be key assets in supporting and furthering our mission.
We very much look forward to working with Lyndsay on all of the exciting initiatives and activities we have planned for 2016 and beyond!
