The Early Years Conference - The Rights of the Child

Date: 
February 4, 2010 - February 6, 2010
Location: 
Victoria, BC
The conference will explore early childhood, family and community development through the lens of Child Rights. The U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child (1990) articulates various inherent human rights that should be afforded to children. Policies designed to support and provide general and specific services to children and their families, should reflect these rights in order that all children may reach their full potential in society. Conference participants will have the opportunity to consider research, policy, and practice from a child’s rights perspective in order to further the quality of their work with children, families and communities.
