Ensemble pour l'Education de la Petite Enfance
Early childhood is a key period in a child's cognitive and social-emotional development.
The Ardian Foundation supports Ensemble pour l'Education de la Petite Enfance in the development of the « Maisons des Mille Premiers Jours » program.
The charity helps parents and early childhood professionals coming from the most fragile and vulnerable areas. EPEPE offers trainings, educational material and raises awareness about the importance of early childhood. They also launched a label, Family Friendly Company, to raise awareness among private companies about the importance of early childhood and parenthood.
In partnership with local authorities, it has set up "Maisons des Mille Premiers Jours" (Early Childhood Centres) that aim to:
fight against birth inequalities
help isolated parents
and allow for reinforced evaluation and follow-up
