Childcare for the Future: A Conversation with Morna Ballantyne
Date: December 10, 2021
Time: 10am-12pm NDT, 9:30-11:30 in Labrador
About the Forum
Join the Jimmy Pratt Foundation, The Newfoundland and Labrador Federation of Labour and the Association for Early Childhood Educators NL for a conversation on the future of childcare in Newfoundland and Labrador.
Through panels, keynote speakers and small group activities, we will explore childcare as a site for early learning, as a social justice imperative, and as a key element of the care economy. We hope that this will be the first of many events bringing together parents, educators, and other advocates for children and families to shape the future of childcare in Newfoundland and Labrador.
