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.

Policies and procedures communicate the values of your organization and provide everyone with a consistent process to follow.  ECEC providers must comply with legislation regardless of their work setting. It is good practice for managers to develop human resources policies that help their centres meet their legislative obligations as well as deal with day-to-day issues.

Language used in ECEC can vary depending on the governance model or province/territory in which you work. Throughout the HR Toolkit, the term “organization” is used to denote a variety of early learning and child care settings – nonprofit, public or commercial. Sometimes the words “centre” “agency” or “facility” are also used. Several sections relate and refer to “boards of directors”.

Clear expectations, appropriate supervision and feedback on a day-to-day basis are the best ways to avoid the necessity of implementing a discipline process as outlined below. However, when problems with behaviour or performance occur, discipline is necessary.
