Idea for Action Summary
In our experience, integrating an array of evidence-based parent coaching approaches into existing young child-focused services and programmes delivers significant benefits for babies, toddlers and caregivers alike.
Those existing services include home visiting, childcare centres, preschools, well-baby clinics, community centres, and more. Bundling them with coaching helps address caregivers’ and children’s needs in a cost-effective way, through programmes they are already accessing. This helps existing services reach more families, more effectively.
