The Atkinson Centre, OISE, University of Toronto School of Early Childhood Education, Ryerson University and School of Early Childhood, and George Brown College present Dr. Susan Prentice from the Department of Sociology, University of Manitoba.

Across North America, childcare is increasingly discussed in economic terms. This 'business case' has motivated new interest and new champions and seems to hold promise for the ECEC sector. At the same time the economic frame displaces concerns that have long been central to the field, including gender justice and children's rights. How should ECEC practitioners weigh the potential gains and losses of this new approach?

Susan Prentice is an Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology, University of Manitoba. Her primary field of research is contemporary and historical childcare policy and advocacy.
