RE: CALL TO ACTION: Supporting Child Care Programs During Restrictions & Throughout Post Covid Recovery.


Dear Minister Schultz, and Honorable Premier Kenny,

The early learning and child care sector has been deemed a critical service but supports for Out of School Care and child care programs are required. As a parent of a child(ren) in care, I am requesting that the province consider the following measures to help support programs during this time:

  • Make rapid testing available for all early childhood educators working in licensed centre-based care
  • Provide ongoing financial support for all licensed child care services enabling them to purchase the personal protective equipment they need to care for children, families, and early childhood educators safe
  • development of an emergency recovery and support plan that will provide programs with sustainable funding should they need to close to protect families and staff (this should include all licensed child care centers
  • provide supports to help licensed child care operators extend out of school programs to ‘all-day care’ in light of school closures due to health orders.

Over the last 14 months the early learning and care sector, and the thousands of early childhood educators who make up its workforce, have done their utmost to serve the tens of thousands of children and their families who access our services in communities across the province. To enable service providers and educators to continue their essential work in the face of the third wave of the pandemic the government must take the urgent actions outlined above.


Insert your family’s journey/ why you need sustainable care here…


If Albertans are to get back to work in the coming months and we are to be successful in reducing the spread of COVID-19 then urgent actions are required to support the early learning and care sector.

Thank you for your attention to this matter and look forward to your response.
