Connections Advocacy Activities
Child Care Connection Nova Scotia (CCCNS) is committed to consulting with the child care sector to articulate their vision for child care in Nova Scotia and to establish priorities in achieving that vision. These priorities then guide the CCCNS Board in evaluating its mission, and the staff in the design, delivery and evaluation of activities.
Advocacy activities that reflect these priorities are:
During the Summer months, events are planned throughout Nova Scotia in celebration of Child Care Awareness Days. The events are meant to promote the value of quality child care and those who provide it to our society. While CCCNS plans the major events in the Halifax area, Regional Coordinators plan events in their area of the province. Many child care programs also initiate their own Child Care Awareness Days events. Child Care Awareness Days are not only an excellent time to let others know about quality child care and what it means, but it is also a great opportunity for the child care community to come together and work toward our common goals! Take a look at the events this year.
Caring At Work Campaign 2004
Each year, Child Care Connections invites a national community/ business leader who is a champion for quality child care to visit Halifax and be our keynote speaker at a business luncheon. This is one way in which Child Care Connection Nova Scotia promotes the value of child care-- in this instance, targeting business, government and community leaders. The guest speaker for 2004 was Charles Coffey, Executive Vice President of Government and Community affairs, RBC financial group.
