The Early Childhood Care and Development Council in the Philippines, in cooperation with Save the Children Philippines, launched the Nurturing Care Framework and the ECCD Council media packages on August 20 2018.

“Good health, adequate nutrition, responsive care-giving, security and safety, early learning and social protection are ECCD’s main components for nurturing care development for children”, said Dr. Teresita Inciong, Vice-Chairperson and Executive Director of the ECCD Council, in her keynote address.

In a subsequent media release, the Department of Education said that the launch aimed to “provide an opportunity for stakeholders to work synergistically to deepen their understanding of the NCF” as well as to “bridge the gaps in integrated service delivery for children ages 0-4 by drawing experiences from successful programming in the communities.”
