The Attachment Parents' Village Calgary (APVC) is a not for profit society. It exists to provide community and support for parents practicing or interested in learning more about attachment parenting.
Our Vision Statement:
APVC aspires to both support and advocate for families to honour, value, and respect children and parents through the ideals of attachment parenting to contribute to a more compassionate world.
Our Mission Statement:
APVC is dedicated to providing families with education and support in the ideals of attachment parenting. our not-for-profit society upholds these eight ideals:
- Prepare for pregnancy, birth, and parenting
- Feed with love and respect
- Respond with sensitivity
- Use nurturing touch
- Ensure safe sleep physically and emotionally
- Provide consistent and loving care
- Practice positive discipline
- Strive for balance in personal and family life
We advocate for these ideals through an online presence and real life events such as: playgroups, parenting classes, webinars, and facilitated discussion. It is important to note that attachment parenting principles apply to children of all ages and are not limited to baby and toddlerhood.
