Early Childhood Parenting Landscape Study

​The Early Childhood Parenting Landscape Study is the first nationwide study involving more than 3,800 parents of young children from birth to eight years of age. The study, done in collaboration with SIM University, is designed to provide a landscape perspective of parental knowledge and beliefs of early years childhood development, parental aspirations for their children and their parenting practices.

The study obtained information on parental attitudes and beliefs, parents’ knowledge of how children develop, their practices and the resources that they access to help them in their parenting roles and responsibilities. Issues and challenges that parents face and the types of resources that are useful for them in their parenting journey were explored in order to inform the development of further outreach strategies.
