As of the end of June 2017, KIDCARECANADA videos have had over 291,000 views - so we know you are watching! And we thank you for that.


Now we are asking you to let us know how YOU feel about our work. If you can tell us about things we’ve done that have been important (relevant/helpful etc.) to you, we can ensure that we do more of the same! One way you can help us improve is by sharing what you see as meaningful thoughts and ideas from the experts we showcase in our video collection.

#KidCareCanadaQuote is a hashtag we’ve been using on Facebook and Twitter as a way of sharing quotes from our videos. So far we’ve selected a generous handful that speak to the reason WHY we have created our collection of videos - to distribute information about child nurturing that might not otherwise be easily accessible to parents and caregivers. And we’ve posted them on Social Media with links to their videos of origin.


We’d love you to do the same. Find a KIDCARECANADA video (use the "Videos" tab in the yellow bar near the top of this page to get started) with a quote that speaks to you. It doesn’t matter if you’re repeating a quote we’ve already shared or if you chose a different one. Share it on Social Media with the hashtag #KidCareCanadaQuote and an explanation of why you think it’s worth sharing. Share the link to the video as well, if you can!

We’ll be scanning to see how the #KidCareCanadaQuote hashtag is being used and we will make decisions about our future based on what you’re telling us.

You can see the current list of OUR #KidCareCanadaQuote selections below (please scroll down).


If you’re not inclined to share online, we’d still love to hear from you. You can email your thoughts to the KIDCARECANADA executive director Estelle Paget, estelle.paget@kidcarecanada.org with your thoughts -  you can even set up a time to speak with Estelle on the telephone.
