Pat Wege, Executive Direct of the MCCA  shares with us “What is a Market Competitive Salary Guideline Scale", how it is used and the current scale for 2016-2017.

The Manitoba Child Care Association has developed a research based Market Competitive Salary Guideline Scale for Early Learning and Child Care Centres (MCSGS) to help centres establish a balanced, fair scale for their employees; to help standardize wages across the province; and to use as an advocacy tool with government to secure better funding to help boost wages. MCCA contracted with People First HR Services to analyze the education, skills, abilities required of core positions, and recommend salary ranges that would be competitive with other jobs that require similar training and responsibility. It answers the long-standing question of “how much should an ECE earn?"

Pat Wege is the Executive Director of the Manitoba Child Care Association. MCCA is a non-profit, membership-funded, non-partisan organization. Their mission is to advocate for a quality system of child care, to advance early childhood education as a profession, and to provide services to their members.

    There will also be an opportunity to discuss as educators the use of technology and how that has been evolving.
