Dubai Cares is working towards improving parenting knowledge and practices so that parents can better nurture the development of young children 0 to 3 years of age in protected environments and ensure that their health and educational needs are being met. The program seeks to contribute to the development of an integrated Early Development (ECD) program through parenting education by creating awareness on the right of pre-school children; responsibilities of mothers and fathers in delivering on those rights; and documenting and replicating good practices which are easy to understand, appropriate to cultural contexts, scalable, and rewarding for parents and children alike.
The program aims to:
• Raise awareness of young parents so that they can apply their knowledge of children’s rights and parenting skills
• Sensitize communities so that they demonstrate acceptance of improved child care, development and nurturing practices through social and behavior change communication
• Provide 30 communities with improved ECD outdoor playground equipment and facilities
