About Early Childhood Week

The 3rd Annual Early Childhood Week, coming November 18 to 24, 2018, will be an opportunity to stimulate thought and conversation about the development of babies and young children from the perinatal period to preschool, highlight local and regional support initiatives, and engage community groups, the business world, elected officials and society as a whole.

Early Childhood Week is part of the “Hand in Hand for the Little Ones” movement, which brings together a wide range of stakeholders to embrace a common cause: the well-being of the next generation.

The week will be jam-packed with activities and events of all kinds throughout the province. Be sure to check them out!
