% of ECE workers have a postsecondary credential (a one-year certificate, two-year diploma, or three- or four-year university degree), compared to 58
% of the total workforce in Canada (CCHRSC, 2009, p. 4). No province requires all childcare staff to have postsecondary ECE training. What are some of the other demographic characteristics of these workers?
What concerns about the experiences of ECE workers are raised in the section -CANADA’S CHILDCARE WORKFORCE: CHILDCARE CENTRES AND FAMILY HOMES?
