Early childhood education and care for Aboriginal children in Canada

Resource Type: Fact Sheets & Briefs
Author(s): Preston, Jane;
Date Issued: November, 2014
Publisher(s): Moving Childcare Forward Project
Description: This brief is drawn from the article "Aboriginal early childhood education in Canada: Issues of context" (Preston, Cottrell, Pelletier, Pearce, 2012). The brief explicates contextual factors that are important to quality Aboriginal early childhood education: privileging Aboriginal pedagogy; promoting Indigenous languages and culture; adequate staffing by qualified Aboriginal educators; empowerment of Aboriginal parents and communities; and in the case of kindergarten services, a full-day timetable. The author argues that strong collaborative efforts are needed by multi-level leaders to ensure that quality Aboriginal early childhood education is actualized throughout Canada. (author abstract)
