Early Childhood Development

Early childhood is perhaps the most desirable and effective window for investments in human capital. Since 2011, the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies and the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University have been part of the Núcleo Ciência Pela Infância (NCPI), a collaboration with the Maria Cecília Souto Vidigal FoundationInsperUniversity of São Paulo Medical School and Sabará Children's Hospital. NCPI aims to bridge the gap between scientific knowledge, public policy and practice to benefit young children in Brazil and around the world.
