MacEwan Child Care Conference
ECDSS is proud to be a part of MacEwan University’s Child Care Conference again in 2018. This years conference has been inspired by the current energy in Alberta in the field of Early Learning and Child Care. Play, Participation and Possibilities: An Early Learning and Child Care Curriculum Framework for Alberta and a revitalized valuing of play, based on current research and the recent International Play Association Conference held in Calgary in September, has focused our attention on ‘play’. To kickstart our return to the keynote format we have invited Pierre Harrison from PLAYLearnThink, and current president of the International Play Association Canada Branch, to engage us in thinking about the importance of play in healthy development.
