Since releasing the Pathway to Stewardship and Kinship Guide in 2017, our team is preparing to move into implementation. There are big plans afoot!
The guide can be used by anyone working with children, anytime. However, preparing a coordinated community-wide effort takes planning and collaboration.
During 2018 and 2019, the Pathway’s Landmark activities are being pilot-tested in limited numbers of childcare centres and schools in both urban and rural settings in the Greater Peterborough Region. We will work with teachers, caregivers, families and community groups to provide training, support and evaluation as the project becomes part of the lives of local children and their families. We will learn together how to move from plans to positive action, and share what we learn.
The ultimate goal is ambitious – to roll out the project community-wide, so that every child shares each Landmark experience as they grow. We believe that every child has the right to be healthy, to care about and feel connected to their world, and to be nurtured by a community that cares about them.
This daunting task requires support in many ways – by sharing skills and resources, creative ideas, financial assistance, thoughtful feedback and goodwill. We’re confident that this can happen here.
