Let's Talk Child Care? Exploring Child Care Experiences in Your Community

Hosted by Mount Royal University (MRU) student Laura Alongi, with the support of the Institute for Community Prosperity and Trellis.

Did you know 54% of Calgarian children live in a child care desert? (Macdonald, 2018)

As residents and child care providers of Cranston and surrounding communities you are invited to participate in a one-hour, virtual Community Conversation about your personal child care experiences and needs. We would like to hear from community residents and care providers like yourself to learn about your experiences, ideas on how child care issues can be addressed, and how to better connect with communities. We understand, as child caregivers, you are very busy and as a thank you for attending the online conversation the first 15 registrants will receive a $10 digital Tim Hortons gift card (after participating in the Community Conversation).

Please bring a pen and paper, and come prepared to discuss your experiences, ideas, and hopes for child care. Attendees will be encouraged to explore the following topics: What does your ideal child care look like? What experiences have you had in regard to child care? How might we address the issue of child care deserts facing many Calgarians today?

If you have any further questions or would like to receive more information please contact me.

The zoom link will be sent to your email prior to the start of the online conversation. Thank you!
