Child care is simply not affordable for many families in Edmonton. Parents shouldn’t have to choose between putting food on the table and quality care for their kids. Child care is the key to getting parents, particularly women, back to work. Investing in quality child care not only creates jobs and grows our economy, it also provides a brighter future for our children.
As your city councillor, Ahmed will:
- Be a champion for universal, quality, affordable and accessible early learning and child care
- Work with both the provincial and federal government to encourage support for child care in Edmonton
- Work to ensure there are enough spaces in Edmonton for these facilities
- Strive towards programs that educate new parents about the importance of early childhood development and literacy
