This campaign was envisioned more than a year ago by community partners who were interested in supporting social emotional development of young children in the broader community
The Central Okanagan Early Years Partnership - Social Emotional Action Team launched a poster campaign on November 15th, 2018. This project was developed over the previous year by community partners who were interested in supporting social emotional development of young children in the broader community. Research through the Early Development Instrument from the Human Early Learning Partnership of UBC has shown that Central Okanagan young children are vulnerable in the Social Emotional domain of child development.
This campaign is a series of 9 monthly posters highlighting social emotional development themes supported by activities sent by email to participants.
If you are interested in participating, sign up for:
a monthly poster highlighting one aspect of social emotional development
a monthly email with simple activities that you can do with young children in your life
participate in social media to bring awareness of simple actions that will support children’s development. Anyone who posts with the tagline #okfamilyconnections will be entered into a monthly draw for prizes such as YMCA family passes, membership to the Childhood Connections toy lending library or children's books.
You can sign up for all or some of these actions by completing the sign up form or by sending an email to email@example.com
We feel that these posters and supporting activities will give you tools needed to easily support the social emotional development of young children.
