The course originates from the desire to respond to the families widespread need to develop proper skills for children homecare and education in pre-school age; the home-care giver is now alone to perform a complex task that is part of the family context and comes into contact with delicate relationship and emotional balances; that’s why his/her work can not be improvised, but requires appropriate training.

A good preparation must give the tools to home care givers for the skills to face any family scenario, be welcoming and creating initiatives to make relational and psychological well-being both to the assisted person and to family members; a home-care giver who has undergone specific training is highly motivated and qualified in his task and responsibility.
