Healthy Early Years : Provincial activity and consultation

The PEI French Health Network has organized a free special activity on Saturday, February 22 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Centre Belle-Alliance (5, Maris Stella Avenue, Summerside) as part of the Healthy Early Years program. This day targets parents of French-speaking children from 0 to 6 years old as well as early childhood workers.

The doors will be open at 10:45 am for the reception and a snack. At 11:00 am, adults will be invited to a conference by pediatrician Élaine Deschênes, who specializes in social pediatrics. After lunch, the findings from the regional consultations and research undertaken during the last months will be presented, allowing for constructive discussions on community activities to prioritize to increase access to health services and programs for young Francophones and their families. This is a great opportunity to contribute to the development of French programs and services for your family and your community. A professional French/English interpretor will be available for English-speaking parents. Lunch will be offered on site.

Children will have fun in the gymnasium before dinner and a "rest" break is planned for the younger participants. In the afternoon, the kids will have the apportunity to meet Lynn Gaudet and her dog Dudley. Lynn and Dudley will teach the kids how to behave with a dog and will facilitate an arts and crafts project. To ensure an energetic end to the activity, Razzmatazz will entertain the children with their educational and catchy music.

Travel expenses will be reimbursed to travelling participants. We also encourage carpooling.

Registration is required before Wednesday February 19.
