Alberta Early Years – Doing What’s Right: Through a Social Justice Lens
October 16, 2017 - October 17, 2017$449
The Alberta Early Years Conference is a biennial event organized by volunteers from a number of organizations that serve and support young children and families. This advanced level conference examines best practice, research and application of strategies to support children and families. The conference participants include practitioners, advocates, parents, administrators, researchers, and policy makers. The conference program typically draws on the strength and expertise across a wide continuum – early education, psychology, pediatrics, biology, epidemiology, and other fields – whose work, taken together, has contributed to a varied and interdisciplinary examination of the early years of life.
The year 2017 is the 35th anniversary of the Canadian Charter of Right and Freedom and this year, and the Alberta Early Years Conference will focus on how to effectively uphold and protect the rights of all children and families by examining, understanding and deconstructing our individual and collective lens. This year’s conference will provide practitioners and educators the opportunity to explore the lens from which they practice and the implications on their work with children and families.
