What does child care policy have to do with ECE practice? The answer is EVERYTHING! The world is full of policies! We will explore the concept of “policy” in general and child care policy specifically at all levels, government to organizational and how these connect to the work we do as early childhood educators.
We have a role in shaping policies, but often do not realize this or feel disconnected or worse intimidated; we may assume they are only meant to be shaped by policy. We will re(connect) with the concept of child care policy, creating space for ourselves as ECEs to realize and reanalyze the integral contributions we can make in shaping policy.
