Teddy Bear Clinic
The Teddy Bear Clinic, which was part of the South Calgary Wellness Fair, which took place at the Shawnessy YMCA on October 1, 2018; was coordinated by the Calgary Deep South Coalition of the 2000 Days Network. Children were encouraged to bring their Teddy Bears or Dolls for a “check-up”. There were physicians, mental and oral health specialists, as well as nurses available during these “check-ups”. Children were also able to play in a waiting room hosted and prepared by Heart of South Calgary Family Centre; and could make their own creations using the “loose parts” items coordinated and offered by Kids Developmental Services. Parents had the opportunity to chat with the health and early childhood intervention specialists to access knowledge and resources for the healthy development of their child.
