Building a Canada-Wide System of early learning and child care: What can we learn from other countries

April 8 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Three international experts will be in town very briefly, and we have the chance to chat with them about how to build a system of early learning and child care here in Ottawa.

Aisling Gallagher (New Zealand / Aotearoa) is Senior Lecturer in Social Geography at Massey University. Her research looks into the politics of childcare and ECEC provisioning in the Anglophone contexts of New Zealand, Australia, Ireland and the UK.

Eva Lloyd (United Kingdom) is Professor Emerita of Early Childhood in the School of Education and Communities at the University of East London. For over three decades Professor Lloyd has specialised in the study of national and international early childhood education and care policies and systems, particularly marketised systems, and their impact on children growing up with disadvantage.

Merete Villsen (Denmark) is the head manager of early childcare in Aalborg Municipality, and intimately understands the approach taken in Denmark towards developing excellent childcare facilities and strategic childcare management.

Looking forward to your company, questions, and ideas!
