Child Care Coalition of Manitoba
The Child Care Coalition of Manitoba is a public education, public interest research and advocacy coalition, which has been advocating for progress on Manitoba childcare policy since 1994. Our membership is open to all individuals and groups who support our mandate. Our website contains a number of excellent resources, including some ground-breaking Manitoba research.
Our goal is a fully accessible, publicly-funded, non-profit system of comprehensive and high quality childcare, with worthy wages and good working conditions for childcare staff.
We want a coordinated and integrated system of services, including licensed full and part-time group and family childcare, parent-child drop-in centres, nursery schools, resource and toylending libraries and other childcare supports for children and their parents.
We use ‘childcare’ to mean early childhood care and development services for children 0 -12 years. We believe childcare can support all children and parents – whether parents are employed, in training, or at-home.
We support an inclusive, diverse and accessible childcare system because high quality childcare is good for children, parents, women, employers and all Manitobans.
Child care is an excellent public investment.
