I am an early childhood educator, and just like many others, my work is in “child care” not in daycare. It’s 2016 after all, and “daycare” is an outdated term for a place where our youngest citizens are cared for and educated.

Canada has child care problems, not daycare problems – and using this outdated term to report about it doesn’t help our problems get the respect and attention needed to fix them.
