Through ECMAP with the help of seed grant funding provided by Alberta Education, coalitions were formed across Alberta. Coalitions are groups of individuals who have come together to plan and promote community-based supports for young children and families. Your local Leduc Regional & Beaumont Early Childhood Development Coalitions.

Our Mission The Early Child Development Mapping Project (ECMap) aims to strengthen Alberta’s ability to make positive early childhood development a reality for every child in the province.

Our Goals •

Provide current information on early childhood development in Alberta

Promote understanding of how children’s early years impact lifelong development

Enable governments at various levels to monitor early childhood development and make informed decisions

Provide credible information on early childhood development to communities throughout Alberta to support local planning and action

Advance early childhood development research and knowledge

Emotional Maturity is age appropriate emotional understanding, empathy, reflection, and controlled actions (thinking before doing). This includes the development of a child’s self-help skills and interactions with others. Emotional maturity helps a child function independently and effectively at home, school, at work and in the community. What Parents Can Do To Help:

EMOTIONAL MATURITY

Volunteer in the community with your child and talk about it afterwards

Point out to your child opportunities to help others (help that man pick up his keys)

Cook with your child and encourage daily help with chores and cleaning

Give your child opportunities to play with other children; to learn to share, to take turns and how to relate to others of the same age

Teach your morals and values and help your child develop a strong work ethic by giving your child a task and to have him/her work on it until it is completed

Communication and general knowledge is open communication of needs and wants in a socially appropriate way, storytelling and an appropriate awareness of the outside world. This includes the development of a child’s language skills including what is said and what is understood. Communication and general knowledge consists of listening, verbal and non-verbal attempts to respond, eye contact, humor and expression of personality. What Parents Can Do To Help:

COMMUNICATION & GENERAL KNOWLEDGE

Talk with your child about “everything”, repeat often and listen to your child

When cleaning up emphasize “put the block in the box”

Read to your child often and ask many questions about the pictures

Encourage your child to speak his/her needs verbally instead of just pointing

Praise your child at each attempt to speak and repeat correctly what is said incorrectly to role model proper speech

Have fun communicating!


Language and thinking skills is age appropriate pre-reading, pre-writing skills, classification of shapes, numbers, colours, size and concept. This also includes how the child plays with toys and the child’s ability to find a solution to increasingly more difficult problems. Problem Solving Skills are a step towards a proper understanding of how to tackle problems and thus to help a child develop coping skills. What Parents Can Do To Help: •

LANGUAGE & THINKING SKILLS

Playing with puzzles, lacing cards, matching objects and playing with play dough

Playing hide and seek or hide a toy so your child can find it

Teach your child simple coping techniques (take a deep breath, come back to the activity later, count to 10) when there is a problem that seems unsolvable

When there is a problem brainstorm with your child the different ways this problem can be solved and then chose which solution is best for the situation

Physical Health and Well-Being is supported by encouraging physical growth and independence, gross and fine motor skills and coordination. This includes the development of the child’s hand and finger movement and coordination (fine motor) and the development of the large muscle movement and coordination (gross motor). What Parents Can Do To Help: Fine Motor

Play cards, Pictionary or any board game, as they all involve problem solving skills

Social competence is encouraging a child to play well with others, curiosity about the world, respect for adults and other children, and following rules/instructions, independence, self-confidence and eagerness to explore new things. This includes the development of a child’s interactions with others and the recognition of their feelings in response to a situation. Social Emotional Skills are when children start to understand who they are, what they are feeling and what they expect to receive from others. What Parents Can Do To Help:

SOCIAL COMPETENCE

Infants can play with rattles and one toy at a time to begin to learn grasping skills

Coloring, writing, drawing, finger painting, eating finger foods and play dough

Squeezing objects, turning knobs and pushing buttons

Puzzles and lacing activities like beading necklaces, tying and sewing

Activities where a child has to pinch clothes pins and use tweezers to sort things

Cooking activities like stirring, adding ingredients and breaking eggs

Gross Motor

PHYSICAL HEALTH & WELL-BEING

Walk an infant around by holding his/her hands and when an infant can sit; have him/her sit and play often to strengthen the stomach and back muscles

Play ball together (catching, throwing, kicking, and running)

Dancing, swimming, balancing on one foot, building with blocks, riding bikes

Have consistent routines to help your child feel secure

Respond to your child’s calls for help or attention so they learn to trust

Model good manners “thank-you”, “please” and “may I?”

Smile at, cuddle with and comfort your child as often as you can

Play at the park (sports, swinging, sliding, climbing, pulling and pushing)

Show positive ways to express emotion through role modeling

Spend a lot of time with other kids so your child learns to share and take turns

Spend the day at the beach (swim, run, play in the sand and throw around a ball)

Go on a walk or hike and slowly increase the amount of time of the activity

2 - 3 Years

I AM 2

(don’t underestimate me) It’s not easy. I’m realizing the world no longer revolves around me like it did when I was younger. Still, life’s not so terrible. It’s just a bit complex and overwhelming at times. I’m trying to understand the world and my curiosity and drive sometimes look like trouble. I’m a force to be reckoned with, a busy brain on the go.
