ECCA hosted Provincial Gatherings: “Moving from Awareness to Action” in 2016 and “Our Data, Our Stories, Our Journey” in 2017. Building on this, Coalitions hosted and gathered for conferences, retreats, and other professional development events regionally to enhance relationships and celebrate successes, collaboration and effective teamwork. ‘Connecting the Dots’ gathered 50 Coalitions from Central and Southern Alberta in 2018 sharing of wisdom, ideas, and inspiration.
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).
