The Pincher Creek Coaltion is working with other key organizations in the community to share best practices and support of growth including supporting the re-development of the only infant daycare space in their community in addition to exploring ways to expand and enhance local childcare and day home options in their area (which is a critical need). They also have been successful in partnering with the local Family Centre in creating ‘Forest Explorers’ addressing the emotional maturity domain. Next steps includes creating nature space for toddlers.
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).
