“I think we can think about all of these different facets of early childhood education and care from the perspective of parents, from children, from the workforce, for the economy, for gender equality, for health…we’re hopeful that it will be that kind of comprehensive leadership, pulling together these different threads to help us move forward.”

“Je pense que nous pouvons réfléchir à toutes ces différentes facettes de l’éducation et de l’accueil des jeunes enfants du point de vue des parents, des enfants, de la main-d’œuvre, de l’économie, de l’égalité des sexes, de la santé… Nous espérons que ce sera ce type de leadership global, rassemblera ces différents fils pour nous aider à aller de l’avant.”
