BARBA, Patrícia Carla de Souza Della; MARTINEZ, Cláudia Maria Simões  and  CARRASCO, Bianca Gonçalves. Health promotion and early education: pathway of child developmental. Paidéia (Ribeirão Preto) [online]. 2003, vol.13, n.26, pp.141-146. ISSN 0103-863X.

The aim of this study is to promote a reflection about the aspects related to the improvement of life quality of children and their families. Items and themes related to care and education are pointed out, using the social-historical point of view, as well as aspects of vulnerability and poverty situations. The theory is based on the indicators presented by UNESCO, the Brazilian Health Agency and it was originally published by OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development). The concept and effective practices of children education in Brazil are presented, highlighting development and health-promotion actions in childhood, also empowerment and intersectionality, with the perspective of constructing ways to minimize the great amount of stressors that the families from less favored classes are exposed to. The necessity of investments for the continuous training of the educators is reaffirmed, considering that satisfactory results are obtained when the intervention involves family, community and public services.
