P.E.I. to regulate daycare costs
« on: May 28, 2010, 07:11:11 PM »
PRINCE.EDWARD.ISLAND (CBC) - The province of P.E.I. is increasing spending in the early childhood sector by 63 per cent, but to access that money daycare centres will have to accept more regulation.

The increased spending and regulation was announced at a news conference Friday morning. Annual funding for childhood development from birth to school age will increase from $5.35 million to $8.7 million a year.

The initiative will see the creation of regulated Early Years Centres and Infant Care Centres. These centres will follow a provincial curriculum and have regulated costs. Businesses will still be able to operate outside of the provincial system, but they will not have the same access to provincial funding.
