The Nova Scotia Canada-Wide Early Learning and Child Care Agreement supports a five-year journey to build a system of child care that cares for everyone: families, children, operators and of course, early childhood educators.
In recognition of the important role that early childhood educators play in sustaining quality early learning and child care, work is currently underway on a new certification framework and a new compensation framework for early childhood educators in licensed child care.
This work, through the Nova Scotia Excellence in Early Childhood Education Workforce Strategy, will result in higher wages for early childhood educators as well as benefits and further professionalization of the sector.
We are excited about this important work and remain on track to implement the compensation framework this Fall.
