Early Childhood Matters (DVD)


Early Childhood Matters (DVD)This DVD is designed to suggest ways that communities can support young children during their first critical years of life. The community leaders featured speak to the significance of the early childhood experiences in shaping the kind of adults our children will become. It suggests that if Manitoba is to have healthy, literate, responsible and resilient citizens, then it's in all our best interests to pay attention, and make sure that our children receive the kind of safe, nurturing and stimulating childhoods they need and deserve.
