Early Years Connections Coalition, County of Lethbridge
Who we are:
The Early Years Connections Coalition, County of Lethbridge, delivers the Early Childhood Coalitions Provincial mandate to enhance and advance early childhood development efforts. We are committed to working to heighten community awareness of the importance of the early years and to advocate for mobilization of communities and families to support the developmental needs of young children and their families.
Where we’ve been:
Our Coalition works together with parents and communities to promote healthy development of all children.
Our past activities:
Outdoor Play workshop with Christina Pickles
I am Ready booklets in collaboration with the Lethbridge Early Years Coalition and the First 2000Days Network.
Partner with a variety of towns in our area delivering activities such as Loose Parts, Roving Gyms, Adventurous Play, and Baby Gym.
Produced and distributed Parent Packs to food banks in our area to deliver to low income families. Packs included activities for toddlers and infants, community resource information, and gifts.
Where we’re going:
Our future focus will be to identify and speak to trends and gaps in early childhood development, raise awareness around challenges families are facing today, and help to create positive family environments for children.
We want to increase communications around the purpose of the Coalition and increase community participation.
Our hope is to heighten the importance of the early years and to help parents/caregivers remember how important they are in their children’s lives.
