2013 Early Childhood Parenting Conference
Every Child Developing Appropriately; Building Trust and Partnership

Bringing up children in their early formative years can be meaningful and fulfilling experience for parents. The Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA) is pleased to present its 2013 Early Childhood Parenting Conference for parents with children from birth to 6 years of age. The theme of this year’s conference is Every Child Developing Appropriately!

Come join us in this half-day conference and gain insights on what constitutes positive early years experiences and sound parenting practices. Create nurturing home-learning environments to raise secure, confident and creative children who feel good about themselves and are eager to learn.

Participants can join in the many hands-on activities and take home ready-to-use practical tips and strategies. Select from 14 workshops at the conference and learn how to enhance your child’s language, communication and literacy skills; pick-up strategies to nurture your child’s love for numbers; understand how you can transform play into an effective tool to enhance your child’s learning; manage your child’s behaviours and create that special quality time with your child.

This conference will be held in collaboration with key community partners including Dads for Life, Family Education Department, Health Promotion Board, KKH Women’s and Children’s Hospital, Ministry of Education and National Library Board.

Registration for the conference begins on 28 Oct. For more information, please log on to www.ecpc.sg
