Araujo, María Caridad; López Bóo, Florencia; Puyana, Juan Manuel
This study collects and systematizes detailed, updated and comparable information about the design, management, funding and quality of child development services in Latin America and the Caribbean. It focuses on two types of programs serving children from 0 to 3 years of age and their families: (a) those that provide child care through institutional and community modalities and (b) parenting programs. Through a varied set of interventions, the two types of programs studied aim to make an impact on the environment of care that children are exposed to during a particularly vulnerable period of their lives.
