October 21st is Child Care Worker and Early Childhood Educator Appreciation Day!

The 21st Annual Child Care Worker and Early Childhood Educator Appreciation Day is Thursday, October 21, 2021!

The York Catholic District School Board takes this opportunity to recognize and thanks its many Early Childhood Educators (ECEs), Child Care Workers and Early Years’ staff who work in our Kindergarten classes, schools, and affiliated child care centres.

YCDSB recognizes that years of research confirms the benefits of high-quality child care for young children’s intellectual, emotional, social and physical development and later life outcomes. Child care promotes the well-being of children and responds to the needs of parents and the broader community by supporting quality of life so that citizens can fully participate in and contribute to the economic and social life of their community. Trained and knowledgeable ECEs and child care staff are key to quality in early learning and child care programs and champions for children.

Thank you for preparing our communities youngest learners get ready for school!
