CHILD DEVELOPMENT & EARLY EDUCATION
Engaged, empowered parents and caregivers form supportive communities to raise safe, happy, school-ready children.
Our strategy to support healthy, early childhood-development and early learning is rooted in the value of community relationships and empower parents and caregivers to use their gifts and talents to grow with their children. Parents and caregivers are more powerful and effective when they live in communities that share a commitment to child development. Any program seeking to improve child development needs to involve parents and caregivers, not only as the recipients of services, but as the primary educators, health workers, relationship-builders, and advocates for their children. Building and strengthening the bond between parent or primary caregiver and child is the central goal of our strategy, and forms the foundation for initiatives to improve early childhood health and learning.
