Child Care Connections-NS: Three Years of Development and Our Commitment to Children, Parents, Colleagues, and Community.
Ferguson, E. Elaine, Ed.
These three documents report on the activities of Child Care Connection-NS (CCC-NS), a service and support organization providing information and resources on the administration of child care programs to residents of Nova Scotia and Canada at large. Formed in 1989, CCC-NS has established itself as an organization that serves all sectors of the child care delivery system, including administrators, staff, child care organizations, licensers, funding bodies, boards, and caregiver trainers. The first document reports on the 3-year developmental phase of CCC-NS, during which the organization: (1) produced a newsletter; (2) completed and reported on five significant research projects; (3) presented 46 workshops on child care issues; and (4) developed a resource library with over 3,000 holdings. The second document describes the development of a draft code of ethics for Nova Scotia child care practitioners. The processes undertaken to draft this code, along with supporting documents and future recommendations, are included. The third document presents the results of a survey of 23 full-day child care centers in Nova Scotia undertaken to examine class size, wages, staff turnover, benefits, and working conditions. (MDM)
