Early Childcare Facilities for the Support of Working Mothers (Estancias Infantiles para Apoyar a Madres Trabajadoras) is a Mexican government programme in operation since 2006, run by the Ministry of Social Development (SEDESOL). It supports child-care services for mothers from households below the national poverty line, who are working, seeking jobs, or studying, or for single fathers in poverty conditions, without access to child-care services from social security institutions or other means. There are 9,234 early child-care facilities providing services to 308,410 children. Only 30 percent of them provide services to approximately 4,500 children with disabilities. The UNPRPD project aimed to strengthen the inclusion of children with disabilities in early childcare facilities and the quality of care provided to children with disabilities.
