The Care for Child Development package trains community health volunteers to help caregivers provide nurturing care and develop stronger relationships with young children. Participating volunteers reported that training increased their skills and confidence, while caregivers reported learning about feeding practices and the importance of play. The authors conclude that there is political will in Kenya to support a care package to promote optimal early child development.
