The Durham Region Child Care Forum envisions a future that includes an informed, educated and trained Early Learning and Child Care sector.
We believe that the best services are available when providers work together, as well as in partnership with families, in the best interest of the child.
Community-based collaborative planning, founded on clear, non-biased communication is necessary to ensure comprehensive care for children.
Ongoing Professional Development
Early learning and child care professionals benefit from professional development throughout their working lives. An educated, relevant and professional workforce improves the community's capacity to provide quality early learning and child care.
Accessibility and Inclusion
We believe that all children, regardless of their differences and needs, are entitled to creative, constructive early learning and child care opportunities that help them reach their full potential.
