Showcasing Responsive Interactions in The Earliest Years

The Universal Baby Project believes that responsive interactions between caregivers and young children happen in many different ways - everyday, everywhere.

Our Guiding Principles


We believe in sharing the existing knowledge of parenting practices around the world and deepening our understanding of child development


We believe that partnerships are strengthened when they engage from a place of positivity, mutual respect and cultural relevance


We believe that the power of video, when locally sourced, can inform and motivate behaviour


We believe caregivers are the drivers of change for a better future for the world's children

Our Vision

ALL caregivers have access to the science of early childhood neurodevelopment

ALL children benefit from early interactions that promote healthy brain development - the tenets of neurodevelopment are universal

ALL communities can learn from, and contribute to, a network of learning toward the wellbeing of every child

Responsive Caregiving

The Universal Baby Project believes that nurturing environments (good health, adequate nutrition, opportunities for early learning, responsive caregiving, and security and safety) in the early years can support children to reach their full developmental potential.

Our video tools showcase responsive caregiving and the many different ways it shows up around the world.


Our Collaborators

We collaborate with health care providers, educators, child development partners and families around the globe.
