The 10th Annual Summer Institute on Early Child Development shifts the lens away from a deficit model of parenting to one that recognizes the strengths that parents bring to the experiences of their young children. In a policy context that will guide integration of key parenting support programs under the Ministry of Education's Early Learning Division, this year's Summer Institute explores lessons that parents as experts can share to inform the design of an effective early learning and family support system.
This conference will explore the complex nature of the social, physical and biological environments that shape children's development. Multiple elements interact to create dynamic contexts that contribute significantly to early and lifelong wellbeing. Similarly, children inﬂuence their environments to shape their developmental paths. All of these factors matter.
