About Early Childhood Week
Early Childhood Week aims to give a voice to the 530,000 children aged 0 to 5 in Quebec in order to make early childhood development a true social priority.
November 15 to 21, 2020, Early Childhood Week, now in its fifth year, is an opportunity for us as a society to stop for a moment, take a closer look at the youngest members of our community and think about what we can do, together, to help each and every one of them get the best possible start in life. Let’s make the most of this week to inspire and inform a conversation about early childhood development in Quebec, from the womb through to preschool, as we shine the spotlight on local and regional support initiatives, and engage community groups, the business world, elected officials and society as a whole.
This year’s Early Childhood Week is being organized by the Collectif petite enfance, a Quebec-wide organization that brings together a broad array of stakeholders to embrace a common cause: making early childhood development a priority for all Quebecers.
The week will be a backdrop for numerous activities and events throughout the province. Be sure to check back and find out more!
