Launched in 2017 in Vietnam in partnership with government, OneSky’s multi-faceted Migrant Model features replicable programs that address the needs of the 1.2 million children under the age of 6 who live near the country’s 300+ industrial parks. While the factories in those parks are bringing prosperity to the country, they also have a shortage of safe, quality, affordable daycare options for families who migrate there for work.
Based in the Hoa Khanh Industrial Zone, our Da Nang Early Learning Center, Home-based Daycare Provider Training, and Parenting Classes are designed to improve the quality and affordability of daycare for children 6 months–6 years old whose parents work long hours in factories.
Early Learning Center
Our Early Learning Center in Da Nang, a model demonstration and training center, provides a safe place to play and learn for up to 250 small children staffed by local teachers we train to provide continuous care and education for children 6 months–6 years old. These trained teachers enhance healthy early development by blending age-appropriate, responsive care with best practices for early education, using a curriculum adapted to serve the specific needs of children in Vietnam. With this evidence-based methodology, they provide a stimulating and nurturing early learning environment that promotes healthy cognitive, emotional and social development.
Home-based Daycare Provider Training
OneSky provides workshops and training for home-based daycare providers so they can deliver quality care and adopt, implement, and replicate best practices. A specialized curriculum tailored for home-based daycare providers is delivered at the Early Learning Center training facility and mentoring and hands-on support is provided by OneSky trainers through on-site visits.
OneSky trainers and mentors provide parenting skills and classes for working parents and caregivers.The class schedules are designed to accommodate parents who work long hours in factories as well as grandparents who may serve as primary caregivers.
