A new look for kidSKAN project's website
August 29, 2013
Our kidSKAN project has a new website. The team has been working over the last few months to give it a cleaner, more up-to-date look, and made it more user-friendly, easier to navigate or to find out what’s going on in early childhood development using the search tool.
The new site has several new features, such as Our Research, which includes reports, posters and fact sheets produced for various research or knowledge translation projects.
There is also a brand-new section, For The Record, with stories and opinion pieces about early childhood development from outside the kidSKAN community.
The site still contains plenty of news, and an improved Events calendar about what’s happening in Saskatchewan and across the country.
The Saskatchewan Knowledge to Action Network for Early Childhood Development, or kidSKAN is a provincial community of practice of researchers, practitioners and policy makers in academia, government and the community with an interest in early childhood development in the province. It grew out of the Saskatoon Understanding the Early Years project, part of a national initiative to help community members to understand the needs of young children in their own communities, so that they are better able to develop programs and services to meet these needs.
The kidSKAN project falls under SPHERU’s Healthy Children theme, led by Dr. Nazeem Muhajarine, with communications and knowledge transfer expertise provided by Fleur Macqueen Smith.
