CHANCES is a PEI institution offering early education, care, family supports and home visiting to families across the island. It is part of a tripartite partnership with the Government of PEI and the Margaret and Wallace McCain Family Foundation Inc. that is evaluating the outcomes of universal access to ECE and testing tools to support program quality. Margaret McCain and Jane Bertrand presented the follow update on the project.
