AKFC Seminar: Innovative Financing for Early Childhood Education
May 16, 2013 at 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM
|Location:||The Delegation of the Ismaili Imamat 199 Sussex Drive, Ottawa, ON, K1N 1K6|
The next AKFC Seminar in partnership with Carleton’s School of Public Policy and Administration in the Innovative Financing for Development series will address the topic, “Investing in a Foundation for the Future: Innovative Financing for Early Childhood Education.”
Decades of research has shown that the experiences of a child’s early years will lay the foundation for their education, behaviour and health as an adult. Governments around the world have been recommitting to early education programs over the last few years, but these programs require a massive investment of people, time and money. In uncertain economic times, budgets for education – and early human development, in particular – are often the first to suffer.
