0This program seeks to contribute to transforming the understanding that adults have about early childhood and early childhood education, raising awareness of the responsibility and impact of parenting and educational practices on the integrated development of children, from a rights-based approach.
 
Specifically, we seek to:
 
 

  • Promote the creation of affective bonding and healthy emotional relationships between adults and children, which in turn help to reduce the levels of violence and child abuse.
  • Share and promote guidelines regarding childcare, nutrition, healthy habits and actions to prevent developmental difficulties.
  • Strengthen and promote the skills of adults who are responsible for the care and education of children that favor child rearing models based on good treatment and affection.
  • Foster and strengthen the construction of social networks, bolstering an active participation of community members in the decision-making regarding children, where the best interest of the child is the foremost consideration.*
