Our projects produced research and developed strategies and tools to meet the needs of the child care workforce and achieve related goals. Click on the titles of our projects for more information.

The purpose of this section of the toolkit is to provide directors and others working in early childhood education and care (ECEC) with a general introduction to HR metrics, which are simply a unit of measurement of human resources. Here you’ll find ready-to-use tools and templates that employers can use to begin collecting and tracking their organization’s HR metrics.

The work of the CCHRSC is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who work in: national and provincial child care or labour organizations; child care centres, nursery and preschools, or their own homes as early childhood educators or employers; post-secondary training institutions; and government.

All organizations engage in HR planning at an operational level – even those that do not have a strategic plan. At the operational level, good HR planning is in part based on thinking ahead about the organization.

To keep good employees, you must meet their needs and expectations, and understand what keeps them inspired. Employee needs and expectations vary from one person to the next. They also vary depending on a variety of factors including the generation of the workers.
