Ideas to improve kids’ early years in Calgary

Calgary Reads_sized

Today, the lobby of the Kahanoff Centre in downtown Calgary is abuzz with people sharing ideas about children and the importance of early years.

Calgary Reads has been asking people how they think kids in Calgary are doing. They’ve been getting some interesting answers and some great advice on how the lives of Calgary kids could improve.

The agency is gathering the information and sharing it with the provincial government and other local organizations working in early literacy.

Here are some of the things they’re hearing Calgarians say are important to helping kids in our community:

      1. Community support for single parents

      2. Early exposure to reading

      3. Child-friendly spaces in communities

      4. Focus on family
