Stimulating the participation of parents in the development and formation of children from early childhood is one of the most recent objectives of the Educate your Child Non-Institutional Care Program, a system that benefits more than 28 thousand children in Las Tunas.
Las Tunas, Cuba - This was confirmed to the Cuban News Agency by Yanara Campaña Mariné, head of the Early Childhood Department in the Provincial Education Directorate, who said that it is vital to enjoying motherhood and fatherhood with equal rights and responsibilities for the personal and cognitive growth and development of children.
The system is responsible for preparing families to stimulate this progress, and that includes all members equally, said Campaña Mariné. The directive explained that attending to the particularities of each child, as well as paying special attention to those with special educational needs, is a priority that the Education sector is increasingly strengthening; so that people receive inter-sectoral and multidisciplinary preparation from the first years of life.
Previously guided by a group of educational actions aimed at each age group, it is now incorporated into the same educational program that has been taught in nursery and primary schools since the third stage of training and the implementation of its forms and styles of work.
Among its protagonists - he added - stand out community agents, personnel from the teaching sector, Culture, Sports, and mass organizations, who become executors of Educate Your Child Program both in the collective and individual modality, the latter being very much employed in intricate rural areas.
In Las Tunas, the program exhibits satisfactory results that are guaranteed by the level of knowledge that the infants show when they arrive at the Primary Education, in agreement with those that are given in the infantile circles.
This program began to be implemented in Cuba in the 1990s for children from zero to six years of age, a system that today seeks greater inclusion and training for families in order to achieve better learning results for the youngest children in the home.
