P.A.C.E. – Project for the Advancement of Childhood Education.
Our Mission – Promote early childhood education for socio-economically disadvantaged children through responsive community efforts.
Responding to the call from then Prime Minister of Jamaica Edward Seaga to assist community-based pre-schools (called Basic Schools in Jamaica), Dr. Mavis Burke established Women for P.A.C.E. Canada in 1987, later renamed P.A.C.E. Canada.
In Jamaica: Over the years, P.A.C.E. Canada has honoured the Memory of early childhood innovator D.R.B. Grant for his contribution to education in Jamaica and the Caribbean, and to the formation of this organization in 1987. Several D.R.B. Grant Scholarships, for students pursuing education studies at Teachers Colleges, have been awarded.
In Canada: P.A.C.E. (Canada) currently awards two Bursaries annually to students in the Early Childhood Education program at George Brown College in Ontario. The awarding of the Bursaries is administered by the College.
