Research shows that a highly-educated and trained early childhood educator (ECE) workforce is key to positive outcomes for young children.
As Nova Scotia prepares for a Canada-wide early learning and child care system, the province continues to work to build a strong, qualified, and stable ECE workforce.
Nova Scotia has received $10.8 million in one-time funding from the Government of Canada for early learning and child care workforce development. This historic investment will allow Nova Scotia to move closer to its vision of having the most qualified ECEs who provide the highest quality early learning and child care in Canada.
Nova Scotia’s Excellence in Early Childhood Education workforce strategy sets out to address key issues identified by those in the sector. Using both provincial and federal funding through the Nova Scotia-Canada Early Learning and Child Care Agreement, the strategy will ensure a strong, qualified, and stable workforce in early learning and child care now and in the future.
