The roots of a healthy and just society can be built in early childhood. When leadership is committed to the country’s development and is active in the social sector, it has the potential to leverage the nation’s growth, laying the foundations for a more prosperous future.
Based on these principles, in 2012, the NCPI launched the Executive Leadership Program in Early Childhood Development, a training program carried out in partnership with Harvard University, which seeks to engage leaders in the development of initiatives aimed at the integral development of children, from birth to 6 years of age.
The Program is mainly aimed at public policymakers, public managers, representatives of multilateral organizations, civil society leaders, and academics.
To date, eight international editions and two in Brazilian ones have been held, which resulted in the creation of more than a hundred action plans – including the Early Childhood Legal Framework – by more than 570 participants.
