REFLECTIONQUESTION:
If wewereworkingon these seven topics, if theywere
less stuck, are these the right things tobepushingon?
Or, are these not thebulls-eye…Respondwith a ‘gut
feel’ (Is thedirection roughly right or 120degrees off?)
If we focusedononeof them, it couldbe anumbrella
for other things. For example, valuing child care
workers, leading toprofessional development,
leading to education about diversity/Aboriginal
issues, etc
Is there a continuumof care for children in there/in
the themes? I didn’t hear about pre-natal, the first
2000days, transition times, etc
Thinking about FrameWorks Institute, Alberta
perceptions, three top valuesAlbertans hold
(interdependence, prevention and ingenuity) – if
that’swhat 15,000people saywhatmatters, I can see
those values as places of opportunitywithin those
themes
Balcony question:
Does theprocess allow for broader
critiqueof what wedo and howwedo it?
Yes, on the right hand sideof theU; we are in the
embryonic stage right now
