The Crowsnest Pass and Area Early Childhood Coalition hosted their first full day Parent Conference, titled “The Power of Parents” on March 31st, 2012. Over 100 people took part in the event including parents, caregivers, children, presenters and volunteers. Childcare, lunch, snacks and beverages were provided at the event, as well as great door prizes and gift bags, thanks to many community sponsors and partners!
The event got underway with a Keynote Address by Dr. Robbin Gibb of the University of Lethbridge, Department of Neuroscience. The focus of the Keynote Address was the fundamentals of brain development and how life experience leaves its mark on the brain, and how early experiences can play a role in positive outcomes for children.
The conference featured presenters who engaged the participants with a variety of topics such as “Why we do what we do as parents”,

The importance of play”, “Dad’s do it differently”, “ Being your child’s emotional coach”, “Practical advice for optimizing brain development”, “Plugged in Tuned out”, “Exer/Play”, “snappy Snacking”.
The Parent Conference wrapped up with a fantastic drumming circle led by Janet Joy and Liz Dolman.
Parents and caregivers told us that at the conference they learned; practical ideas to implement immediately”, “how important fathers are in helping raise their children”, “that play is important”, “how to be a better emotional coach and think about what my child is feeling” and “how to talk to my child and how important I am to my family”.
