Nurturing care in early childhood development requires responsive interactions and opportunities to learn. There are few large-scale programmes in low- and middle-income countries that support caregivers’ abilities to provide responsive care and activities that help children learn. The Reach Up intervention is a suitable approach to address this gap.
The programme provides a comprehensive training package for trainers, supervisors, and home visitors. Based on the Jamaica Home Visit intervention which has substantial impact evidence, Reach Up has been used in several countries where it has provided evidence of its feasibility and lessons that can guide future implementation.
Provide an evidence-based parenting programme as an essential investment for life course development.
Deliver a comprehensive set of materials to support caregivers in providing a more stimulating environment for their children, improving quality interaction and facilitating learning.
Facilitate a parenting programme that is culturally relevant.
