This paper discusses the importance and necessity from the field of early childhood, to implement primary prevention programs designed to promote child development and family and school adjustment. It describes the experiment carried out since 2005 by the Research Group on Early Childhood Intervention (GIAT), University of Murcia (Spain), and analyzed the results of the 2010-2011 academic years in the Infant School Lorquí (Murcia, Spain) with a group of 64 children and their families. The results indicate an improvement of mental and psychomotor development of children, between the beginning and the end of the school, which highlights the relevance of such services. The study finds a higher level of initial development in children and families who have followed the program of prevention and promotion of child development compared to those who have not received it.
