Early Childhood

Child care, development and education from birth to age eight must be             co-ordinated to maximize the benefits to our children.

A Yukon Liberal Government will:

  • research, develop and implement a Yukon Early Childhood Strategy (childcare, development and education), in consultation with early childhood education and health care professionals, parents and First Nation governments, in order to improve developmental and educational outcomes, and
  • create structures that close the gap in responsibility between the Departments of Health and Social Services and Education.
