You may recall that April and Jane , our Co-Chairs wrote to Sarah Henry in the Department of Social Services seeking answers to many questions regarding the complex issues that we are currently dealing with in relation to child care and early learning. We asked for a reply by March 7, 2008 for the following reasons:
- The government’s own fast track schedule for changing the act
- If the department had done the required research to consider any changes, all that we asked for should be ready and pose no problem.
On March 7, 2008 we received the following reply from Sarah via email.
Good morning Jane and April,
Thank you for your letter, and interest in the Child Care Facilities
Act and Regulations. A response is being prepared and will be mailed to
the address provided.
I look forward to our continued conversations about supporting children
and families in Prince Edward Island.

Well it is now March 28, 2008 and still nothing has come to us via email or regular mail, despite several follow-up attempts. Guess it is time to step things up a bit…
