In Fort Saskatchewan, partners came together to host multiple parent and children play sessions and parent conference. Partners in these events included schools, public library, Primary Care Network (PCN), Alberta Health Services (AHS), Parent Link Centre (PLC), Boys & Girls Club, Business Community, RCMP and Kid Sport. Participants received information on the recent local <a target=“blank” href=” https://ecdcoalitions.org/coalition/fort-saskatchewan/ ”>EDI data</a> and received <a target=“blank” href=” https://ecdss.ca/go-play/ ”>”Go Play”</a> posters. The local high school students got involved and catered the event. The Coalition also hosted a public presentation to share the EDI data and focused on the importance of the early years and how the community might support early childhood development.
Lethbridge Early Years Coalition (LEYC) created five themes of Digital Play Packs to help parents and caregivers find balance between engaging in active play opportunities and digital play with their children. Learning from the West Red Deer County Early Childhood Coalition, LEYC created Science Magic, Hide & Seek and Superhero Fun Digital Play Packs (DPPs).
