Supporting the Early Childhood Workforce at Scale: The Cuna Más Home Visiting Program in Peru
Home visiting interventions can impact children’s development with long-term health, education, and social benefits. Home visitors – be they professionals, paraprofessionals, or volunteers – must be highly prepared and well supported. Yet across sectors and countries, their motivation and capacity are threatened by inadequate training, burdensome workloads, lack of supervision, poor wages, and other adverse conditions.
In the first of a series of case studies by the Early Childhood Workforce Initiative (ECWI), this publication examines how the challenges of scaling up home visiting services have been addressed by the Cuna Más programme in Peru.
