The purpose of this report is to get people talking and engaged about early childhood development. Why? Because the prosperity of our province depends on our ability to foster the health and well-being of the next generation; because any child, no matter his or her circumstances, has the right to opportunities that will ensure their ability to grow, develop and thrive; and because, when we invest wisely in children and families we benefit from the constant renewal of people who contribute though a lifetime of productivity and responsible citizenship.
