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.
