The proposed regulatory changes released in December 2013 by the provincial government are facing criticism from child care advocates and experts. Specifically, the proposed changes that would allow for larger child groups to be cared for by fewer trained staff.

The TCBCC spoke to the Community Development & Recreation Committee (CDRC) about the ongoing implementation of Full Day Kindergarten, specifically the impacts that this process is having on pre-existing child care centres. The June 26th CDRC committee meeting heard many deputations from child care staff speaking to the Full Day Kindergarten Implementation update. They spoke “about the overwhelming stress on our child care programs, and the distress about the claw back of wage subsidies.” TCBCC reaffirms the fundamental need to protect wage subsidy payments
The TCBCC appreciates that CDRC staff “have struggled to keep this underfunding system together…But it is imperative that this NOT be done on the backs of fee-paying Parents and hard-working child care staff.”
