About the Forum

Join the Jimmy Pratt Foundation and the Corner Brook, Gateway and Bay St. George Status of Women’s Councils for a conversation on the future of childcare in Southwest Newfoundland.

For the first time ever, thanks to the recent federal-provincial childcare deal, we have the chance to reach every child and family in the province. This event will dive into the details of Newfoundland and Labrador’s childcare plan with Neria Aylward, Executive Director of the Jimmy Pratt Foundation. Then, we’ll move into a discussion of childcare needs across Southwest Newfoundland – from larger towns to small communities. Throughout the event, we will put a focus on inclusive childcare that welcomes every child and family regardless of their needs.

This is part of a series of events bringing together parents, educators, and other advocates for children and families to shape the future of childcare in Newfoundland and Labrador.
