This kit is comprised of bilingual resources for child caregivers related to nourishing and nurturing a child's brain for optimal neurodevelopmental health.

The kit contains the following items in both English and French: (1) a background paper summarizing research findings on children's developmental health, drawing on a consilience model of human development to bring together genetic, social, historical, cognitive, and biological research; (2) a fold-out of five resource sheets on caregiver practice, providing information on brain development, healthy attachment, responsive care, protection from harm, and a caregiver checklist; (3) a resource sheet on supporting breastfeeding in child care; (4) a wall poster showing four key elements for healthy brain development; (5) a resource guide containing an annotated bibliography of 23 print, videotape, and website resources; and (6) overheads and discussion notes for presentations to colleagues and parents. Also included in the kit are evaluation forms for the kit and for the overheads and presentations using the kit. (KB)
