November 20-26, 2016 will mark the first edition of The Early Childhood Week

Making early childhood issues a priority for Quebec society.

The theme: Hand in hand for the little ones. 

This annual week will provide an opportunity to:

  • Communicate and encourage discussion on the status of the welfare and development of very young children in Quebec
  • Focus on actors and actions that have the potential to promote their development
  • Raise public awareness and mobilize society to take action, including in municipal, economic and political spheres

Put The Early Childhood Week in your calendar right away-you won't want to miss it!

Many activities have been planned across the province, so stay tuned for more details in September.
