National Learning Summit on Middle Childhood

Hosted by the National Alliance for Children and Youth, the purpose of the Learning Summit is to highlight work that is taking place across Canada on middle childhood: to share information and knowledge; to explore common themes and regional differences; to explore a draft policy framework; and to network and engage with others. The goal of the Learning Summit is to build knowledge and momentum for addressing issues of middle childhood that will create action at the local, provincial and national level.

Who Should Attend

Academics, researchers, practitioners, service providers, funders and policy development professionals from the public, voluntary, and corporate sectors who are interested in issues affecting children age 6-12. Space has been reserved for up to 300 participants to attend from across the country on a first come first served basis.

Invited Plenary Speakers

A series of distinguished guest speakers will provide overviews for all Summit participants of the latest research, knowledge, and trends affecting children age 6-12 in Canada and from an international perspective.

Breakout Session Offerings

A choice of six workshop topics are available for each of four breakout sessions designed to explore overarching themes in more detail and encourage interactive discussions around specific research, policy implications, and successful practices in program and service delivery.

Forums for Kids and Parents

A “Kids Speak Out” Forum and “Parents Talk Back” Forum are both planned for Sunday afternoon in conjunction with the Learning Summit. To learn more, see insert included in this registration package.
