The purpose of this section of the toolkit is to provide directors and others working in early childhood education and care (ECEC) with a general introduction to HR metrics, which are simply a unit of measurement of human resources. Here you’ll find ready-to-use tools and templates that employers can use to begin collecting and tracking their organization’s HR metrics.

“Child care is central to providing support to children and families, enabling parents to contribute to the economy and ensuring the learning, care, and developmental needs of children are met. The child care workforce is critical to the success of these outcomes and to the well-being of a healthy and productive society.” – CCHRSC Working for Change Report, 2004
