Edmonton Council on Early Learning and Care Position Paper for the Review of Alberta’s Licensing Act and Regulation

The Edmonton Council for Early Learning and Care is pleased to submit suggestions for the review of the Child Care Licensing Act and Regulation. The Council recognizes the important contribution good legislation can make toward ensuring the wellbeing of children and their
families, and we highlight four areas of the Licensing Act and Regulation that are especially in need of improvement. We also recognize, however, that progress toward building an excellent system of early learning and care will require more than legislative changes, and so we point to some of the additional steps that will need to be taken to ensure that Alberta’s families will have early learning and care choices that are high in quality, affordable, and accessible.
