In August 2021, Canada and Ontario signed the Early Childhood Workforce Funding Agreement which provides funding to support the retention and recruitment of a high-quality child care and early years workforce.

The Ministry of Education’s approach for this funding provides for flexible, multifaceted strategies recognizing the importance of not only recruiting new individuals into the profession, but also retaining, supporting, and recognizing the existing child care and early years workforce.

One of the strategies Bruce County is currently implementing is a full day professional learning event for all Bruce County child care educators.  To allow all our staff to attend this educational event, Paisley Kids & Us, Chesley Kids Club and Sacred Heart Mildmay Kids Club will be closed on Friday, October 28, 2022.  You will not be charged for this day.

Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding.
