Raising Healthier Generations from Day One
Calgary Public Library is pushing the boundaries of traditional library spaces for children age 0-5 with an innovative approach to Early Learning Centre design.
There are currently ten Early Learning Centres in Calgary including the first nature playground at Forest Lawn Library. Each location is built around a distinct concept with special features to inspire child-led activities. Programs are designed using current research and best practices in child development to support children and families, creating positive experiences where growth and healthy development can occur. These spaces are dynamic environments for learning, collaboration, and social connection.
