The Importance of Child Care On Early Childhood Development

A New Generation of Canadian Families Raising Young Children

 


Progress Reports

In November 2002, the Government of Manitoba released the first of a series of major progress reports on Early Childhood Development (ECD).

Investing in Early Childhood Development and subsequent Progress Reports provide information to Manitobans on ECD investments, activities and outcomes of children’s well-being, and the development of intersectoral partnerships for exchanging ECD knowledge, information and effective practices.

In the 2003 and subsequent Investing in Early Childhood Development Reports, reporting to Manitobans on Early Learning and Child Care is included.

The Importance of Child Care in Early Childhood Development

Progress on the 1997 Manitoba Birth Cohort Study
(Tots Study - Etude Parlons Petite Enfance)

Healthy Child Manitoba and Social Development Canada are working in partnership with South Eastman Health/Santé Sud-Est and DSFM (Division scolaire franco-manitobaine) to find out more about child care through a research study called the 1997 Manitoba Birth Cohort Study. The study is following children from preschool to school entry and beyond, measuring how child care affects their behaviour and development in the areas of social skills, problem solving, motor skills and school readiness. Over time, this knowledge will help us understand how early child care and other experiences influence children’s development.

On each page, findings from current research are used to discuss the implications of the data presented in the chart. In the concluding section, policies to support families with young children are described.

This report was prepared and published through a collaboration between Human Resources Development Canada’s Applied Research Branch and Healthy Child Manitoba.
