During the trainings, we offer them theoretical modules and then bring them to work in a group to familiarize themselves with certain tools and to participate in role-playing and simulation exercises.

Thanks to the training of these women and the multiplication of new quality childcare options for toddlers, more and more young children will have access in the coming months to spaces conducive to their development. More and more mothers are entrusting their young children to professionals with confidence to work, earn income and gain independence, or return to school.
