Roving Gyms were in response to the need to increase physical health and well being for children during the winter months. In response to the 2014 EDI data, the Medicine Hat Coalition created opportunities to for active play collaborating with many organizations to build engagement. With sustainability for the community, the local YMCA was able to integrate this idea into their programming. The Coalition continue to support in various ways including sharing key ECD information and professional development support for new leaders. In response to the 2016 EDI Community Reports and inspired by this example, other Coalitions in the region including Lethbridge, discovered ways to build this success into their community efforts.
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).
