To strategically support early childhood development, regional volunteer community coalitions have been formed throughout the province.  They work to improve the environments that impact children’s physical, social, emotional, language and communication development in their early years.  The South East Edmonton Early Childhood Community Coalition (SEEECCC) is the coalition in your area. The coalition is made up of volunteers, including parents, grandparents, educators, health providers, librarians, child care providers, and others who are passionate and committed to nurturing young children in the community.

We are working collectively to build a community that helps our young children reach their full potential.

NEW EDI DATA

The South East Edmonton Early Childhood Coalition (SEEECCC) has received the EDI data from the 2016 province wide collection and overall our children are doing quite well, although 138 of the 393 kindergarten aged children assessed in the SE area are at risk or vulnerable in the domains of social competence and emotional maturity.

Why is This Important?

Early Childhood development sets the course for a child’s future.

It affects:

  •  how well they do in school, and
  •  their physical and mental health, behavior, relationships, and general well being.

Providing healthy environments in the early years pays great dividends. Happy, healthy, successful children create vibrant communities. For every dollar invested in the early years, $7 is saved in later years.
