Medicine Hat Early Childhood Coalition
Who we are:
We are a group of parents, service providers, community agencies and stakeholders who are working towards increasing awareness and understanding of the importance of the early years.
Working collaboratively with community members to:
*Increase community engagement
*Educate and learn
*Create partnerships and joint projects
*Offer coordination of resources
Using 5 developmental indicators of:
*Physical health and well-being
*Language and thinking skills
*Communication skills and general knowledge
Where we’re going:
Our Coalition has been hard at work over our time together to create partnerships with other community agencies to offer responsive and personalized programming based on community needs. Two of our most successful activities include Roving Gyms which runs September through June and our Play Guides summer program. Both of these programs originated from the work of the Coalition and are currently being run by community agencies. We are currently gathering data from parents to create our next opportunity to support! We look forward to new partnerships and maintaining those which we already have.
