National Study Reports Manitoba a Leader in Providing Quality Child Care

Source: Government of Manitoba, November 23, 2011

Excerpt: "Manitoba has one of the best child-care systems in the country, according to the first Early Childhood Education Index issued by the Margaret & Wallace McCain Family Foundation, and the province continues to improve and offer more high-quality licensed care for children, Family Services Minister Gord Mackintosh said today. "First, let me express my sincere appreciation to Canadian early learning advocate, the late Dr. Fraser Mustard. Through his leadership and the work of his colleagues, children are truly getting a better start in life," Mackintosh said. "I am pleased the report demonstrates how we compare with other provinces but it also gives us guidance as we look to the future. We know that providing affordable, quality, licensed child-care for families gives children a head start as they prepare for school and allows more parents the choice to pursue training, education and employment.""
