The ISSA Network Advantage - Prioritizing young children's development in emergencies

In emergencies, the amount of investment in ECD is scarce and very fragmented. More than half of humanitarian and refugee response plans focus on immediate needs while neglecting the overall development, learning and well-being of the youngest children and their caregivers. Due to its complexity, ECD can be best guaranteed within a multisectoral and integrated approach, mobilizing various resources in a well-coordinated manner.

Module 23: Becoming a parent: Prenatal visits to families

Transition to parenthood is one of the major transition points in individual and family life courses. It mobilizes personal identities, relations, and gender roles within families and imposes a series of (expected) changes that result in capacity building, the development of new behaviours, roles, and relationships in order to adapt to being a parent. Changes in a woman’s body and prenatal growth and development of the unborn child are certainly the most obvious aspects of the prenatal period.

Prioritising the professionalisation of early childhood education and care staff

Early childhood education and care (ECEC) services for children under six years of age play a fundamental role in laying strong foundations for lifelong learning and wellbeing, especially in the first three years of life. Quality ECEC services can make an extraordinary difference in children’s lives, especially for the most disadvantaged. Research indicates that children from vulnerable groups derive even greater benefit from high-quality ECEC than their peers from more advantaged families.
