The Network has identified four strategies that it will focus on to influence social change within the ECD system through its Collective Impact process. These include:
- Behaviour Change: Build relationships and trust among network participants by convening participants on a regular basis in meaningful ways.
- Collective Action: Provide a framework through which network participants can start to understand their work in a common way and to have a larger view of what is happening across the city so that intentional alignment can be supported.
- Systems Change: Increase understanding and collaboration with provincial-level activities related to ECD in order to inform local action.
- Adaptive Learning: Continuously learn what is working and what can be improved so that the best practice emerging from the field can be leveraged.
Trusting: a focus on building trusting relationships
Collaborative: shared responsibilties amongst the group to lead and contribute
Particpatory: many voices heard and opportunties to engage
Authentic: planning, process, and implementation are in-line with vision and purpose
Transparent: access to information is shared, decision-making processes are known, status of actions visible
Adaptive: revisions are encouraged based on learning, changes in the environment and people involved
Innovative: demonstration of leadership, perseverance, and courage to push against conventional barriers to achieving progress
