OneSky helps vulnerable young children thrive
The OneSky Approach
OneSky supports governments as they strive to improve the quality of early childhood care and education for all young children, regardless of their circumstances. Our work always begins with an invitation from the local community to pilot a program, and the movies through a demonstration and refinement stage with an ultimate goal of progressing towards government adoption.
Inspired by Reggio Emilia’s child-centered principles, informed by the global science on early childhood development, and locally adapted for low-resourced 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 independent 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.
