Toddler development part of the focus of FAN UBC partnership


The The Family Action Network is continuing to work on a project with UBC on the Human Early Learning Partnership, the goal to enhance the well being of children and families in the area.

They're one of 5 pilot sites in BC.

Executive Director Christy Anderson says right now they're focusing on the Toddler Development Instrument for children between the ages of 1 and 2, which gathers information anonymously on early childhood experiences, and gives parents a voice about their own experiences in raising children.

She says they can take that information and use it for program or service planning in the region to best support families.

They're looking for families in Castlegar, Trail and surrounding areas to fill out the Toddler Development Instrument online, head to
