Child Care Spaces VS. Children & Mothers
SWEDEN
Child:
-Children of ages 1 are entitled to a place in the childcare by law
-Children of the ages 2 and 3 get 80% of the childcare spaces available

Parent:
-Paid parental leave (can be divided equally amongst the two)
-Parental leave is 80% of the annual earnings for 13 months


Early Childhood Educator:
-Get good training opportunities
-Adequate wages for teachers and assistants.

On careful analysis, Sweden ranks first for quality national child care.
Unfortunately, there are no well developed, well-designed, accessible early childhood education and care available in any of Canada’s provinces or territories.

According Cleveland & Krashinsky there are three key
elements in Childcare Strategy:

1) Comprehensive good quality childcare policy
2) Comprehensive social policy towards parental leave
3) Care for school age children
SUGGESTIONS FOR ALLOCATING P.I.
-ECEC System is mostly publicly funded and publicly operated
-Almost 2 percent of the country’s GDP is designated to ECEC
-The average program costs are calculated to be $12,000+/child
