Child care is a provincial responsibility in Canada, except for Aboriginal and Military child care. As a result, each province and territory has its own legislation and regulations that govern early childhood education programs. It is useful to understand the diversity of legislative frameworks and compare them to those of Alberta. 1. Define and describe Alberta and one other jurisdiction. Conduct research on one jurisdiction from the following list: British Columbia Saskatchewan Manitoba Ontario Quebec Newfoundland and Labrador Prince Edward Island Nova Scotia New Brunswick Nunavut Northwest Territories Yukon Federal Aboriginal Military International (discuss your choice with the instructor: for example Australia, Sweden, Norway, Korea etc.) 2. What does each jurisdiction say about child care? Prepare a report that compares and contrasts Alberta with your chosen jurisdiction. Some things to consider and compare with Alberta are: Type of legislation – Do they have a Child Care Act or is it included in other legislation? What is the government’s role? What is the breakdown of auspice (for-profit vs. non-profit programs)? What is the average wage of a child care provider in that jurisdiction? What does the research say about the quality of care in that jurisdiction? What does the legislation say about: Ratios Group size Training requirements / staff qualifications Director qualifications Does the government provide: Operating grants Capital grants Start-up grants Wage enhancement grants Training grants Parent subsidies What makes their Early Learning and Child Care programs different or unique? Share some of the highlights of the work they are doing in ELCC 3. Explain how the legislation does or does not support best practice. Compare what you have learned about the two jurisdictions and provide a summary about which policy framework seems to best support best practice. This is a research paper, 8-10 pages and should include citations and references to other sources All information must be cited and referenced according to the APA guidelines. 4. Create a brief summary presentation (5-10 minutes) to share your findings with the class.
