To the Legislative Assembly of Alberta;
We the undersigned residents of Alberta, petition the Legislative Assembly to reaffirm the Government of Alberta’s commitment to expanded Early Childhood Education and Care.
We petition the Government of Alberta to:
- expand The Alberta Early Learning and Child Care Centres pilot program to cover all of Alberta;
- increase educational and professional development opportunities for workers in the sector by providing accessible programs which include wage-loss compensation;
- ensure increased educational requirements are accompanied by increased remuneration reflecting education and responsibilities; and
- start a pension program for the child care sector to ensure workers have a secure retirement.
