This paper makes a proposal for the comprehensive assessment of the family context of children aged two years. It offers an updated resource based on recent research into the assessment of family contexts and their influence on children's psychological development. The proposal explores the following areas: Presence of learning materials; Potential for play; Stimulation of cognitive development; Stimulation of language development; Emotional expressiveness; Setting of limits and optimal frustration; Enhancement of self-esteem and autonomy; Observation of mother-child interactions; Father's involvement; Quality of non-parental care; Relations with the extended family and social support network; Stability of the child's social relationships; Relations with the school; Diversity of experiences; Absence of exposure to conflict; Absence of parental stress; and Quality of the physical context. The areas explored are grouped into three blocks: Stimulation of cognitive and linguistic development; Stimulation of socio-emotional development; and Organisation of the social context and physical environment.
