application/pdfEvaluation of First Steps (Intera za Mbere) Parents’ interactions with infants and children in the first years can have a long-term impact on physical, health, on social and emotional well-being, and on cognitive capacities (CDC, 2007). With training, parents can become more effective providers of the care and stimulation that babies and young children need to develop properly (Evans, 2006). Since the Pilot Phase of First Steps (Intera za Mbere) Program in 2015, Save the Children continues to implement the program with an aim to improve parenting practices, child development outcomes, and promotion of emergent literacy in the home.
