Community Resources:

We are so lucky to have Anita Olson, our Early Childhood Community Consultant, sharing what’s happening and available throughout our community.

Another lovely message from the feelingsfirst.ca social emotional development campaign. Check out this little video about being present, here.

Every child needs a trusting relationship with at least one dependable adult in their lives, so they can grow and develop in a healthy way as family and community members, friends, thinkers, and discover their connections to the natural environment. You don’t have to be a childcare expert – just being present to provide love, safety, security, joy, and paying attention to them is enough.

I highly recommend following feelingsfirst.ca on social media – choose what’s best for you!
