West Red Deer County
West Red Deer County Early Years Coalition
Who we are:
We consist of invested and dedicated partners from the communities of Bowden, Penhold, Springbrook, and Spruce View, wanting to ensure healthy development for children 0-6.
Vision: Positive early childhood development is a reality for every child in our communities.
Mission: West Red Deer County Early Childhood Coalition supports and strengthens families and communities to ensure children 0-6 (have the opportunity to) develop to their fullest potential.
Where we’ve been:
Our Coalition has been working hard since the start of the early childhood coalitions in Alberta.
In the past we were fortunate to partner with Red Deer College on different projects to enhance development in our communities.
We have grown in members and have added a coordinator and administrative assistant to share roles in helping guide our Coalition in our goals of having happy healthy children in our communities.
Some of our successes Include:
Early Years Festivals
Speakers such as Enrique Feldman, Dr. Jody Carrington and Danielle Reed
Community Wide Development Activities
Early Development Instrument (EDI) Information Sheet
Ages & Stages Fair
Where we’re going:
We continue to meet once a month as community partners made up of Family & Community Support Services (FCSS), Alberta Health Services (AHS), Parent Link, child care and other invested members. We are a committed and cohesive group who continually strive to share knowledge, ideas and strengthen families so that children are given the optimal opportunity for healthy development.
We are looking at strategies to diversify our Coalition by adding some parents and other key stakeholders. Join us!
We look forward to continuing to work well as a region and even more provincially.
