Abstract

          Early childhood development is an important foundation for improving the further skills and abilities at higher levels. However, the number of Thai children in their early childhood with
developmental delays has not decreased during the past decade resulting in widely adverse impacts on children, families and the nation. Fortunately, delayed development in children can be controlled and preventable. Nurses and health personnel can provide an important role in the application of the andragogy to the learning process for guardians. 


          The purpose of this article was to present how promote guardians to be able to perform effective surveillance and promotion of early childhood development based on the andragogy. In this article, early childhood development and the guardians’ learning process based on andragogy for surveillance and promotion of early childhood development were described with the emphasis on the roles of nurses and health personnel. This would be a useful guideline for nurses and health personnel to further apply with children of this age group for their age-appropriate developmental milestones.
