Addressing Barriers to Access
2012 Human Early Learning Partnership
There is much evidence that current family policies are not effective and that all is not well for young children and families in Canada. Good quality early childhood services not only promote a young child’s health, learning, and skill development, but also positively influence their longer-term health, educational, and social outcomes. This is particularly so for vulnerable children. Our challenge is to build services that reach all children and families, particularly those who need them most.
