The project in Hamilton was designed to engage families with young children in a process that builds their capacity to support their children’s learning and development and shapes strategies for broadening community support for welcoming and including all children. Hamilton, through the Social Research and Planning Council, elected to focus activity in east Hamilton, primarily the Riverdale community.
