Overview of presentation:

- Current thinking about ELCC
- Not only a strategic investment
- But certainly a strategic investment in women and children
- Under the right circumstances
- Early learning = quality

Conclusions &em; Key messages

- ELCC is a smart strategic investment in both the current and the future labour force
- ELCC is a two pronged benefit (mothers and children) but ONLY if it is done right
- A great deal is known about what "doing it right" means
- Canada isn't doing it
