The Worth More campaign is going strong, but we are still waiting for Ontario’s child care workforce strategy. So this summer join ECEs, early years staff, child care providers, and families across Ontario for the Worth More Wednesdays: Summer of Action!
We have been so inspired by the inventiveness we’ve seen from the ECE community on the Days of Action. We want to make sure our message will continue to be heard loud and clear all summer long. We’ll provide a toolkit of ideas, printable resources, and conversation prompts, you’ll provide the ECE Magic to build stronger relationships with children, families, and your community.
Our Toolkit features 5 weeks of fun and easy ideas and resources to take action with your community.
Of course the activities outlined in our Toolkit are simply examples and your actions may look different to reflect the needs of your community. We hope you'll feel free to adapt our Toolkit as necessary. If your timeline is different, and you will start the actions a little later, that’s OK too. It’s never too late to care out loud! If you are not working directly with children, or you aren’t able to participate in every action, we invite you to think creatively, with the Toolkit as a starting point.
Be sure to keep an eye on the AECEO and OCBCC accounts, where we will share ideas, including inspiration for actions individuals can take. However you use our Toolkit, we hope that you will feel the message at the heart of it: that relationships are advocacy, and that you already have all the skills and knowledge you need to be a leader in this movement. Every week we’ll send an email reminder, along with resources and prompts for the week to make it as easy as possible to join in because you, and every ECE, child care worker and family are WORTH MORE!
