Position Paper Calling for an Integrated Approach to Early Childhood Development.

First 2000 Days Network in Calgary link, align and leverage work to promote the importance of Early Childhood Development (ages 0 to 5). They’ve launched an engagement campaign ahead of the provincial election to try and get this issue in front of candidates

The evidence is clear: What happens from the ages of 0 to 5 can alter the course of a person’s life. Let’s not waste an opportunity to invest in this most powerful and formative time. Together, we can make sure that every Alberta child has the opportunity to develop to their fullest potential.

The First 2000 Days has released a position paper calling for an integrated approach to Early Childhood Development. To help spread this call, we’ve created a campaign to put ECD on the policy agenda for the 2019 Provincial election.

For this initiative to be successful, we want as many candidates, community and sector leaders, friends and colleagues to understand that ECD matters! You are invited to use one or all of the resources below to tell people that investing in the Early Years is important to you.
