Summary: An integrated system of high-quality and affordable early learning and care is recognized by EndPovertyEdmonton as a “game changer” for eliminating poverty, and it is also a target heavily supported in the federal budget announced last spring. But where does the responsibility lie for building such a system? Do local governments and school boards have roles to play? Panelists from the Edmonton Council for Early Learning and Care will address these questions and explore possibilities for building a system of early learning and care that will benefit all the children and families who want it.
