The Nurture Programme
Giving babies and infants their best start in life
The first three years of a child’s life is a critical time for their health, development and their future. During these early years, parents and caregivers engage with many health professionals and services. Over the past five years the HSE Nurture Programme has improved services for infants and their families, through better public information, training for staff, and new approaches across universal child health and wellbeing services. CES provided implementation support to the programme, which was delivered through six national implementation teams.
