Virtual Training Workshop on Collecting Data on Early Childhood Development in Household Surveys

November 28, 2023 @ 8:00 am - December 7, 2023 @ 5:00 pm EST
On October 22d, 2021, a little girl and her mother of Chacalte Chichen (a mayan community where either Q’eqchi and /or Poqomchi is spoken), participate to a workshop about early child Development (ECD) organised by the CECODI center. (Chacalte Chichen, Alta Verapaz, Guatemalala)
Unicef promotes positive parenting and care practices encompass: health; nutrition; early learning; security and safety; and responsive caregiving. While a growing number of parenting programmes are emerging, few of them address all of these five domains, with most focusing on one or two areas; and most have been implemented at small scale. Many focus on the early childhood years, with very few addressing parenting of adolescents or of children with disabilities.
Early childhood offers a critical window of opportunity to shape the trajectory of a child’s holistic development and build a foundation for their future. For children to achieve their full potential, as is their human right, they need health care and nutrition, protection from harm and a sense of security, opportunities for early learning, and responsive caregiving – like talking, singing and playing – with parents and caregivers who love them. All of this is needed to nourish developing brains and fuel growing bodies. 
UNICEF works with governments and other partners to close the gaps in our knowledge of young children’s development, support monitoring and reporting on its many dimensions, and generate evidence to advocate for better resourced and targeted interventions in the early years of life. We also report on global results from the implementation of ECD programmes in our country offices. Photo edited: UNICEF blue wash
