What Makes a Preschooler in Childcare Happy?

PRESCHOOLERS IN CHILDCARE CENTRES ARE HAPPIEST WHEN ... 

Ontario. April, 2012 - What makes a 5-year-old happy? For children in Toronto childcare centres it's lunch with mum, a dog's wagging tail, the colour purple or a long table for lots of people to sit at.

On April 20, kids from all over took Toronto part in "The Big Picture", a celebration of what makes young children happy. That marked Global Action Week, the Global Campaign for Education's annual education awareness event. The Big Picture focuses on the importance of Early Childhood Care and Education for improving child well-being.

The Big Picture included an outdoor event hosting 120 young children and their caregivers and parents.

Highlights included: a 250 foot art installation of children's artwork answering the question "What makes me happy?"

Testimonials

  • Preschool Leader

    Having heard a colleague talk about how useful she had found their material I joined. ChildForum's replies to my queries are prompt, extremely informative & with a genuine personal touch. I am impressed by the commitment to research & courage in tackling the hard issues like the risks of poor quality care for under 2s
