The Muttart Foundation

Practice Area

Early Childhood Education and Care



In April 2015, the Muttart Foundation sponsored four regional stakeholder consultations to consider how best to advance the educational preparation and professional learning of Alberta’s early learning and care workforce. The regional consultations discussed the growing body of research that looks at the formal educational preparation and professional learning of the early childhood education and care workforce, considered the implications of this research for certified early childhood educators and certificated teachers in Alberta and explored possible options to increase the capacity of staff who work with young children to respond to the growing educational and social demands placed upon them. These reports include the transcriptions from those consultations.
