 visible to only a few members of the community

Sometimes the projects are very big involving over 100 people and sometimes our work affects one adult who is responsible for one child - and this is the beginning of changing the world - this child's world.

Our Coalition is working on creating an impact in the community for kids to grow in a safety environment developing at their unique potential. Members and volunteer in our Coalition link, align and leverage with other organization to empower our work.

“I’m Ready” booklets

“I am Ready” booklet was created by the Calgary Deep South Coalition members:
The booklet informs parents and caregivers about the crucial 5 areas of child development and lists the community assets available.

The booklet was a big success, it has since grown into other booklets: I am Three, I am Two and its Spanish versions were developed. This and the fact other Calgary coalitions are using the booklets within their communities, reinforced our work and pushed us again focus on the production of the map.

 early DEVELOPMENT INSTRUMENT ~

EDI, or Early Development Instrument, is a questionnaire used by Kindergarten teachers across Alberta to assess overall development in a child’s first five years of life. The EDI measures children’s ability to meet age-appropriate developmental expectations in five general domains: Physical Health and Wellbeing, Social Competence, Emotional Maturity, Language & Cognitive Development, and Communication Skills & General Knowledge. It was developed at the Offord Centre for Child Studies at McMaster University.
