Supporting Employers in the Early Childhood Education and Care Sector (2009)

This project ran from June 2007 to February 2009 and focused on:

  • Improving the understanding of employer governance models in regulated early childhood education and care sector settings.
  • Documenting the human resources (HR) needs of employers in different regulated settings and contexts.
  • Gathering employers’ perspectives on addressing priority HR issues in the sector.
  • Documenting innovative tools or practices that already exist.
  • Identifying and prioritizing solutions that could help employers address human resources issues, including identifying tools that could be subsequently developed to address prioritized HR issues.

This project resulted in six key resources: 



Downloading, copying, and distributing CCHRSC resources

Despite the dissolution of the CCHRSC it is hoped that the CCHRSC`s research and tools will continue to be widely used to advance human resources issues in the sector. In turn, all organizations and individuals conducting research and/or offering ECE training, professional development, and other workforce development initiatives are authorized to download, copy, and distribute CCHRSC documents as needed, provided no fees are charged to end users and provided appropriate acknowledgements are made. Organizations and individuals are not authorized to download, copy, and distribute CCHRSC materials for profit. Any person or organization requiring clarification or consent to the use of such material should contact the CCHRSC Trust
