The Province is implementing Wage Enhancement in the licensed child care sector. The initiative is intended to close the wage gap between Registered Early Childhood Educators (RECEs) working in the education system and those working in licensed child care. It is also intended to help stabilize child care operators by supporting their ability to retain qualified staff and to reduce poverty by supporting greater employment and income security. The following Q & A has been provided by the Ministry of Education to help answer questions staff and operators of licensed centres may have.
Private Home Child Care Wage Enhancement Application - 2017
Centre Based Wage Enhancement Application - 2017
