On July 6th 2023 , the Jimmy Pratt Foundation released its fourth discussion paper on the early years in Newfoundland and Labrador. “Making Space: 2023 Roadmap on Early Learning and Childcare” proposes 5 pathways supported by researchers and advocates that would help the government create more regulated spaces in a matter of months. This document focuses on 5 priority areas: Retaining the ECE workforce, building the public childcare system, introducing Junior Kindergarten, and developing targeted strategies to increase rural and Indigenous childcare spots.
