Why an Early Childhood Week?

Early Childhood Week aims to give a voice to the 530,000 children aged 5 and under in Quebec and to make early childhood development a true social priority.

Early Childhood Week 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. 

Early Childhood Week is an opportunity to raise awareness, encourage dialogue and advocate for early childhood development.

Ghislain Picard

Chief of the Assembly of First Nations Quebec-Labrador

If we want to create a society where people feel supported, empowered and encouraged to reach their full potential, we have to begin that work in the earliest years of a child's life. That time, from birth to kindergarten, sets the foundation for a child's future, and it's crucial that we find ways to support our children, and their parents, during these vital years of growth and development.
