OneSky helps vulnerable young children thrive
The OneSky Approach
OneSky partners with local communities to train adult caregivers (early educators, child welfare workers, childcare providers, parents, extended family members, foster parents, and others) to provide responsive care and create the types of safe and nurturing learning environments that help young children thrive.
Inspired by Reggio Emilia’s child-centered principles, informed by the global science on early childhood development, and locally adapted for low-resource settings in each context where we work, the OneSky Approach is transforming young lives and systems of care across Asia.
Safe and Nurturing Learning Environments
Collaboration with local partners
A holistic approach for systemic change
Our approach starts with the child and her caregivers – and expands to involve the broader community and system of care around her.
We operate demonstration centers, provide blended and digital learning, and train early childhood caregivers and families. In partnership with governments and organizations, we build capacity to scale programs through the training of trainers and the provision of technical assistance.
Our evidence-based curriculum
OneSky’s training curriculum draws from global research and two decades of practical experience in training.
Relational, interactive and adapted to meet the cultural contexts in which we work, our training is delivered by local trainers via a blended learning approach that combines classroom sessions with hands-on coaching and online learning communities.
Topics include: responsive care; child brain development; social-emotional learning; reading and language development; trust and attachment; play and discovery; health and nutrition; daily care routines; and more.
In China we train caregivers in child welfare institutions and rural communities to provide family-like care for vulnerable young children.
In Vietnam, we train home-based childcare providers who care for the children of migrant workers in industrial zones.
In Mongolia we provide family skills training to support young children living in migrant communities.
In Hong Kong, the P. C. Lee OneSky Global Centre for Early Childhood Development provides family and professional caregiver training.
