We foster and support children’s healthy brain development in the Caribbean and all tropical regions worldwide.

The Caribbean Center for Child Neurodevelopment (CCCN) is an intervention and research center under the umbrella of the Windward Islands Research and Education Foundation (WINDREF) at St. George’s University, Grenada.

Please Donate to Help Those Affected by Hurricane Beryl in Grenada, Carriacou, and Petite Martinique 🇬🇩

In the wake of this disaster, it’s critically important to attend to children’s needs for physical and emotional safety and connection to their families and communities. “When we feel triggered by threat, the only way to soothe the survival state is through the creation of safety.” (Conscious Discipline)

On July 1 2024, Hurricane Beryl devastated parts of Grenada and significantly impacted our sister islands, Carriacou and Petite Martinique. Hundreds of children and their families are now without shelter, food, water, and basic services.

You can help by contributing to disaster relief efforts. Your support can provide essential resources like shelter, food, water, and emotional support to those in need.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity.

Why we do what we do

Up To 250,000 Million Children...

…(mainly in low- and middle-income countries) under the age of five are at risk of failing to reach their full neurodevelopmental potential. Evidence indicates that this early child development deficit can be prevented by ensuring ideal health and environmental conditions. The way forward to improve developmental outcomes is clear. The challenge now is to design, develop, implement, and assess appropriate intervention programs in low- and middle-income countries where they are most needed.

How We Can Help You

⊛ We conduct trainings on brain-based Nurturing Care interventions such as the widely acclaimed Conscious Discipline programme.

⊛ We design and implement systems for measuring and evaluating programmes that improve child neurodevelopment in developing tropical regions.

⊛ We build local capacity for assessing neurodevelopment in ways that are culturally reliable and valid in the Caribbean and in tropical developing regions.

⊛ We develop and disseminate best practice policies for child neurodevelopment to local, national, regional, and international policymakers.
