About - Childcare Is Essential

We are a group of volunteers — Manitoban parents, childcare providers and allies working towards a fully accessible, publicly-funded, non-profit system of comprehensive and high quality childcare with worthy wages and good working conditions for childcare staff. 

Specifically, we are organizing both in response to and against the attacks on our childcare sector that have arisen during the COVID-19 pandemic, and those we foresee with the KPMG report commissioned by the Manitoba provincial government, expected to be released this summer. 

We are calling on Manitobans to join us in speaking against these cuts, and to push government to establish the childcare sector we all need. 

OUR GOALS:

A fully accessible, publicly-funded, non-profit system of comprehensive and high quality childcare with worthy wages and good working conditions for childcare staff.
