Prince Edward Island recognizes Early Childhood Educator week 

February 6-10 recognizes that early childhood educators play a vital role in early childhood development and help to shape children’s emotional, intellectual and social skills.

“Early childhood educators are an invaluable part of our education system and deserve the utmost respect for the contribution they make to our children’s early years. This coming week is an opportunity for parents and families on Prince Edward Island to show their continued appreciation to this dedicated group of educators. I urge all Islanders to recognize the importance of early learning and childcare, and those who are at the heart of the system - early childhood educators.”

- Education and Lifelong Learning Minister Natalie Jameson
