Calls For Early Childhood Strategy

The Nova Scotia Council for Early Childhood Development is calling on the provincial government to create an early childhood development strategy.
The call comes as the council marks National Child's Day and the 20th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
The council says Nova Scotia should follow recent recommendations in Ontario which call for full day learning programs for 4-and-5 year olds - and - enhanced parental leave among other things.
