Government Lying Again to Parents About the High Quality of Daycare

The federal government is again claiming that it funds “High Quality” early learning and child care. However the evidence from studies of daycare quality conducted by daycare advocates, and from peer-reviewed empirical studies shows that the majority of licensed daycare in Canada is of “minimal to mediocre” quality, not high quality. Inadequate staff: child ratios are the primary reason for inadequate quality. The ratio problem cannot be fixed by unionization, higher wages, or more training.
