Description of Child Care Training Programs in Canadian and International Jurisdictions.
Ontario Ministry of Community and Social Services, Toronto.
This report reviews the child care arenas in Canadian jurisdictions in particular, and in the jurisdictions of Sweden, United Kingdom and France as well. The report also provides a list of Canadian early childhood education programs that have lasted two years or longer. For each jurisdiction, the related legislation is outlined in order to provide a context within which to make comparisons to Ontario. All programs in jurisdictions where there are specific legislative requirements regarding staff qualifications, or where bonafide training programs are identified in legislation, are reviewed. In instances where there are no staff qualifications, or where the legislation does not recognize specific programs, only programs of two years' or longer duration are considered. Equivalency processes for individuals with foreign or alternative credentials are described. (RH)
