The Survival & Early Childhood (SEC) Global Resource Curriculum contains 23 Home Visit lesson plans designed specifically to support a caregiver through her infant’s first year of life. In this period, those implementing the program are focused on teaching a mother to: recognize her baby’s needs and signals, understand the importance and practice of bonding with her child, create a safe and stimulating home environment, understand and practice family planning, and know how to provide nutrition in addition to a focus on home management principles. Home Visit lesson plans generally contain learning objectives, a materials list and directions for preparation. Each lesson includes a brief mental and physical health check, reflection time to review the previous lesson, spiritual mentoring, learning activities, developmental activities, learning reflection time, an action plan and/or homework, and a closing prayer.
Note: The language in these lessons primarily references mothers as the caregiver. However, the content applies to any primary caregiver – father, grandmother, guardian, etc. Feel free to tweak the language to fit your context as appropriate.
