Early Years

St. Albert Early Years Committee

We are a multi-sectorial coalition that has come together to actively promote positive early development, using the EDI (Early Development Instrument) as a tool to spark interest in the Early Years. We work together using current knowledge to inform, engage and inspire families and the community to support the development of young children in St. Albert.

Early Childhood Development Matters!

  • It sets the course for a child’s future;
  • It strongly influences success in school and work, mental and physical health; productivity, behavior, relationships and overall well-being;
  • It lays the foundation for all later development and provides a unique opportunity for getting children off to the right start for a good future;
  • Its benefits are far more reaching, from healthier, happier, more successful individuals to more stable and prosperous societies.
