Childcare project includes seven recommendations for improvements to P.E.I. system

Journal Pioneer, March 27, 2019

Excerpt: "Starting universal preschool for four-year-olds in P.E.I. is one of the recommendations coming out of a research project released Tuesday.
The Margaret and Wallace McCain Family Foundation partnered with CHANCES on the six-year research project to look at the impact of expanding access to early-childhood services with a focus on at-risk families.

Margaret McCain was at the CHANCES office Tuesday where she said there is a shift away from considering daycare as babysitting and, instead, focusing on the child and the need for education that includes care.

“The focus is changing from a workplace support to a child support,” she said."
