Porcupine Hills/Willow Creek

Porcupine Hills Early Childhood Coalition

Who we are:

Our goal is to assist in the development and enrich the lives of all children ages 0 – 5 within the regions of Nanton, Stavely, Claresholm, Granum and MD of Ranchlands.

Where we’ve been:

Our Mission: We believe that families are the foundation of society, and that pre-school children are the building blocks of the community.
Why? Brains aren’t just born, they are also built!!! It is important to help to build HEALTHY BRAINS through activities supporting social, emotional, physical health & well-being, language & thinking and communication development.

Where we’re going:

Our priorities:
Community Engagement – PHECC will host an ECD Gathering to encouraging community involvement in local efforts and actions related to ECD

Knowledge Mobilization and Communication – we provide parents and caregivers, easy to read, practical strategies to support ECD in everyday actions, using our new “Only 5 Minutes” campaign

Collaborative Planning and Partnerships – PHECC collaborates with service partners such as: AHS, FCSS, FSNAPS and Wildrose Community Connections to provide ECD information through “I Am Ready” booklets to our diverse population

Coalition Development – PHECC members have intentional conversations with stakeholders that include parents, schools, and community to build relationships, receive feedback and to explore their interest in participating in PHECC to support planning for the future.
