EARLY CHILDHOOD DEVELOPMENT


​Children’s futures depend on their early years. They need loving caregivers and safe homes, intellectual stimulation, social and educational opportunities, good nutrition and health care. Without a stable, caring and supportive environment to grow up in, a child will not grow and develop properly. Initiative's Early Childhood Development programs ensure that the youngest children start their lives in the conditions they need to live at their potential — from the beginning.

We promote access to early learning environments, safe and protective home and community environments, children’s and families’ access to healthcare and nutrition.
