Jimmy Pratt Foundation

The Jimmy Pratt Foundation, in partnership with the Margaret and Wallace McCain Foundation and The Harris Centre at MUN, hosted a day-long visioning workshop to stimulate a year-long public conversation on what quality early childhood education could look like in our province. Held on November 5, 2013, this workshop was intended to spark an informed public discussion about the value of a comprehensive, integrated and inclusive early learning strategy for the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. Throughout the workshop there were keynote speeches from national specialists and panel discussions with local stakeholders.
