Monitoring child development - principles, approaches and tools

During the first years of life child development is very intensive, dynamic, and complex, influenced by the interplay of a wide array of biological and environmental factors. Most children follow a typical trajectory of development across the domains of physical, social-emotional, and cognitive development. However, some children may be at risk of not developing to their full potential due to lack of nurturing care, health-related or biological conditions.

The Wellbeing Issue: What does it mean for parents and other caregivers?

We need to reimagine support for caregivers. This message is at the heart of this edition of Early Childhood Matters where stories that centre the wellbeing of parents and caregivers — from Kenya to Brazil, from India to Ethiopia, and from New Zealand to the Netherlands — show what is possible when they are supported as humans first.
