Childhood First Model is currently being implemented in the State of Mexico, the country’s most populous state with 16 million inhabitants.

Its characteristics such as size, population density and geographical diversity, called for a gradual implementation during a four-year period, which began in 2019 with over 600 families and due to its early success, it has scaled-up to 4,000 families, despite the health crisis due to Covid-19.

Bebés + Fuertes has successfully improved parent-child interactions and enriched their care environments.

 

It has also connected families with information and materials to support their children’s cognitive and socioemotional development, with the aim of assuring their school readiness.

One year after its inception, the Early Education Initiative of the State of Mexico, named “Bebés + Fuertes” has advanced to become one of the benchmarks for public policy at a national level.

 

Its execution is one of the most valued interventions by local citizens and an initiative with the potential to be extended to the entire state.

OUR MODEL'S IMPACT ON PARENT AND CHILD OUTCOMES

ASSESSMENT OF

BEBÉS + FUERTES PROGRAM

Our model and its different elements have been evaluated by Harvard University under faculty professor Catherine Snow, expert on language and literacy development in children.

 

As an independent 3rd party evaluator, they have completed a formal evaluation of our model to determine the quality of our materials and educational tools; the quality of interaction in the care setting between Early Learning Specialists, parents and children; the quality and developmentally appropriate implementation of activities; and overall the impact on children and their families.

 

The outcomes of this evaluation are consistent with program data that Accede Innovación has been collecting since it began implementing the Childhood First Model at the State of Mexico. So far, the outcomes are as follows:

 

early learning specialists

96% of the participants consider teachers’ guidance and qualifications as the best elements in the program.
88% of the specialist reported being positively impacted by the initiative.

 

PARENTS

 90% of the registered families, maintained their participation trough the four-month intervention, despite of the health crisis due to COVID-19.
 
57% of participants reported to engage in their children’s play after the program implementation.

 

CHILDREN

Early Learning Specialists reported positive changes in children throughout the course of the Program, including increased use of language and greater engagement.
 
Parents reported noticeable changes in their children’s skills across early literacy, executive function, and social-emotional domains.
