Over recent decades, academia has amassed significant amounts of data and evidence on the effects of nurturing on the physical, emotional, and social development of infants.
We use these data and evidence in our work.
Typically, this information is not easily accessible to most new parents. That is why KidCareCanada exists! We “translate knowledge”. Our videos and ABC’s book, available on this site, take current research and “translate” it into accessible language and visuals that parents can use in their own time and as often as they like. In this way the research generated contributes to the well-being of infants and children.
This page is particularly helpful for health and educational professionals. You will find original research by KidCareCanada and bibliographies we use.
