In response to citywide suspension of classes including our education workshops, we are engaging migrant moms and kids in activities to encourage positive parent-child interactions. One of our activities was a selfie contest where we asked them to share photos of their family activities. We’re so glad to see all the happy faces!
At PathFinders we believe all children matter – that every child deserves a fair start in life and the opportunity to reach their full potential. As the only organisation that specifically supports the needs of children born in HK to migrant mothers, predominantly FDWs, we place the child at the centre of everything we do. Our Client Services have evolved based on evidence published by the World Health Organisation (WHO) in their Nurturing Care Framework for early child development to ensure every child gets the best start in life. Nurturing care refers to a secure and safe environment created by parents and other caregivers that ensures a child’s good health and nutrition, protection from threats, and provides opportunities for early learning, through interactions that are emotionally supportive and responsive.
What is Responsive Caregiving?
• The child has secure emotional relations with caregivers
• Caregivers are sensitive and responsive to the child’s cues
• Caregiver-child interactions are enjoyable and stimulating
• Communication is bi-directional
