Child Care Champions: Toolkit for constituency meetings with Ontario MPPs

Our objectives
  • We need all MPPs to hear that the Ontario government must maintain support for Ontario’s licensed child care system and wage enhancement for educators.
  • We want them to understand that tax rebates and deregulation aren’t effective ways to address child care needs.
  • We want to leave MPPs thinking hard about the situation for families and educators in their local riding and communities – we’re counting on them.

What we are asking of MPPs
  • Get a personal commitment from the MPP to be Child Care Champion: to learn more about the issue, discuss it with colleagues, and find opportunities to support stable investment in child care for Ontario.
  • Ask them to commit to protecting key investments in child care including: $2/hr wage enhancement grant for ECEs and child care staff; funding for licensed child care operation and subsidies.
  • Ask them to learn more about our long-term vision for a system based on 3 Big Ideas:
    1. low fees or no fees for families;
    2. decent work and pay for educators;
    3. more public and non-profit child care spaces.
  • Ask all MPPs for a photo with our Child Care Champions sign. At the end of each meeting ask if you can have a group photo of the MPP holding up the sign.
