ISSA, the International Step-by-Step Association, is based in Holland and works across Europe and Central Asia. It is an association of agencies committed to protecting and developing the interests of early years children. Members include international, national, and regional NGOs as well as local government and academic institutions.
ISSA advocates for and supports competent Early Childhood Systems for all children, especially the most vulnerable. Always on the lookout for new ways to improve these systems, ISSA asked =mc consulting decisionscience team to help them explore the potential of decision science to:
- Enable organisations offering childcare provision to create more impactful approaches, especially among employees, parents and volunteers.
- Help policymakers and others in senior positions to frame best practice in attractive and engaging ways that would help ensure compliance.
- Look at how anyone providing direct care for children could encourage more prosocial changes in diet, exercise, the role of fathers in upbringing, etc.
