CORNER BROOK — Parents and child-care representatives from around the province are being asked to provide their thoughts on improving child-care legislation and regulations.
Starting on Jan. 29 the provincial government will hold province-wide public engagement sessions to build on the preliminary round of targeted consultations that were held in June 2013 as part of a review of the Child Care Services Act and Regulations.
The only west coast session for parents will be held in Corner Brook on Jan. 29 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the College of the North Atlantic’s Fisher Children’s Centre.
“Reviewing the Child Care Services Act and Regulations is an integral part of our government’s ongoing commitment to enhance the quality, sufficiency and affordability of child-care services in the province,” said Paul Davis, minister of Child, Youth and Family Services, in a press release.
Interested parents and child-care representatives can also submit written feedback to the Department of Child, Youth and Family Services by Feb. 28. To register, or to provide written feedback email BrendaRicketts@gov.nl.ca or call 709-729-5960.
Session registration must be received at least 48 hours in advance of the scheduled meeting time.
