The Yukon government is reviewing the Child Care Act

November 27, 2023

The Yukon’s Child Care Act came into force on July 1, 1990, replacing the Day Care Act of 1980. It is the law that licensed child care programs must follow. The Act also describes the care and supervision of children in these programs.  

The Yukon government is reviewing the Child Care Act so that it reflects what we now understand is important in an early learning and child care environment. We want to hear from Early Childhood Educators about what’s important to you when it comes to licensed child care programs. 

We will be holding in-person engagement sessions to allow for discussions on the changes you want to see to the Child Care Act. Additional sessions will be made available as needed, to ensure that everyone interested is given the opportunity to participate.
