Research plan: Action research


Research methodology: The research was conducted in children aged 2-5 years, teachers, and parents. The tools used were interviewed forms and tests of knowledge and skills in promoting child development. Data were collected by interviews, focus group discussion, and observation and analyzed by percentage, mean, standard deviation, T-test, and content analysis.   


Results: The developed capacity-building model of Child Development Center used 3 main strategies, namely: 1) capacity development, 2) participation and 3) positive reinforcement. After the model had been implemented, teachers and parents had more knowledge to promote child development at a high level (24.17%) and at a moderate level (48.27), respectively. Also, the skills in assessing child development of 41.38% were at a high level and those of 58.62% were at a moderate level, respectively.  When comparing the mean score of knowledge after the development, it was higher than that of before the development (  =12.60 S.D.=2.53). In addition, the mean score of the skills in assessing and promoting child development was higher than that of before the development ( =14.71 S.D.=2.54)


with statistical significance (p<.05). For these reasons, the development of 96.30% of children was in accordance with their age and 100% of them received assistance and were followed up.


Conclusion: The factor of success in development is to focus on the development of people with the correct knowledge in order to lead to quality child development that affects the quality of life of children in the future. Allowing all parties to participate in the development and empowerment to create a concrete model can be used as the guideline in promoting child development at all ages.
