Since 2009, Avenir d’enfants has contributed to the mobilization of countless local and regional stakeholders throughout Québec around early childhood-related issues. In November 2015, the Forum Tous pour euxwas the perfect example of this mobilizing force.

As a matter of fact, it is during that very Forum that was born the impetus for the Early Childhood Week. Such mobilization and enthusiasm needed to keep going and, above all, reach players from sectors less traditionally concerned with early childhood, such as the business world and municipalities.

This, a collective movement was born which unites already mobilized organizations and individuals in a context where early childhood-targeted measures are at the heart of vital collective choices.

Those partners are therefore committed to making the Early Childhood Week an opportunity for outreach, dialogue and societal mobilization in favour of early childhood.
