Early Learning Heroes
PLASP Child Care Services is an award winning organization – made possible because of our amazing staff. During the month of August, Toronto Children’s Services is launching an online recognition campaign to say thank you to childcare staff for their frontline response during the pandemic and for providing support to essential workers, children, families and our community. PLASP will be taking part by sharing images and messages of thanks to our excellent staff on our social media platforms using the hashtag #earlylearningheroes.

“Our staff’s commitment to our children and families never ceases to astound me and all the more this past year as we witnessed one of the most challenging years PLASP has seen as an organization.” said Lynn Hiebert, CEO of PLASP Child Care Services. “What does it mean to be a hero? To me, a hero is someone who does what needs to be done - and needs no other reason. So, I salute the PLASP staff from the bottom of my heart and other early learning professionals who are heroes of the pandemic”.

“I have been so impressed! I had heard great things about PLASP, and now having had an opportunity to see firsthand all that staff are doing to ensure that the children learn, thrive, and have fun despite challenges imposed by the pandemic has been so uplifting and I cannot wait to continue to meet more of this great group! – Rosemary Stiglic, VP, Operations.
