The Nurturing Care Framework provides a roadmap for action. It builds on state-of-the-art evidence about how early childhood development unfolds and how it can be improved by policies and interventions.8 It outlines:
• why efforts to improve health, well-being
and human capital must begin in the earliest
years, from pregnancy to age 3;
• the major threats to early childhood
• how nurturing care protects young
children from the worst effects of adversity
and promotes development – physical,
emotional, social and cognitive; and
• what caregivers need in order to provide
nurturing care for young children.
The Framework describes how a whole-of-government and a whole-of-society approach can promote nurturing care for young children. It outlines guiding principles, strategic actions, and ways of monitoring progress.
