TRU looks to support early childhood educators with new funding boost

July 19, 2019

Access to affordable childcare is directly impacted by retention of early childhood educators, which is why Thompson Rivers University is looking to support this profession with the help of over half a million dollars in new provincial funding. A TRU release reports that TRU researcher Laura Doan will use the funds to develop programming designed to keep educators in the field. “Early childhood educators are vital to the health and wellbeing of our youngest and most vulnerable citizens, and this kind of research being conducted right here in our community, will create necessary improvements with provincial impact,” said TRU President Brett Fairbairn.
