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.
