One-to-One Program (Granny Program), Bulgaria
The “grannies” are retired women from the local community, usually with a background in childcare or health services. They work one-on-one with the same one or two children, usually five days a week for four hours each day, to provide the individual stimulation and education so important for healthy development.
They work under the direction of a psychologist who holds regular meetings, discusses the needs of each child, offers techniques to assist the child, and designs strategies to move the child to the next developmental level.
The retirees are paid a small stipend and are required to keep a journal documenting their children’s activities, growth and accomplishments.
