Building on the success and relevance of the Integrated Early Childhood Care Protocol, Futurar, Talking City, and FMCSV proposed the development of a methodology to support municipalities of different realities in interconnecting their health, education, and social assistance departments for comprehensive Early Childhood Care in various municipalities across the country.

This methodology was transformed into a scalable digital tool, aiming to guarantee essential comprehensive care for Early Childhood and, consequently, improve access to essential services and vulnerability indicators.


The Panel of Basic Offerings for Early Childhood, an online, open, and free tool hosted on the First Childhood First Portal, allows visualizing the offerings already accessible and those that can be made available to Early Childhood audiences in a municipality in the areas of health, social assistance, and education at each stage of Early Childhood.

Public managers use the tool to map the offerings of each area based on a list of services based on federal regulations, organized considering four important stages of Early Childhood: pregnancy, birth and the first ten days, the first three years, and four to six years.


The tool has national reach, allowing access by over 5,000 Brazilian municipalities. And it represents a tested, open social technology that is adherent to the reality of new municipalities with very different installed capacities – and of the most diverse sociodemographic realities.\

One of the main values perceived by managers was identifying gaps in the Panel. That is, by filling out the checklist and viewing the results, it is possible to have a clear diagnosis and starting point for teams to act. This is a relevant advantage, especially because it helps prioritize actions and goals for those municipalities working on building their Municipal PI Plans (a federal guideline) and even to understand the reality of the municipality in different neighborhoods and territories – by creating a panel for each of the regions, for example.
