Abstract: The goal of this article is to provide a synopsis of the Roving Caregiver Program (rcp), a home-based intervention programme designed specifically for young Caribbean children who are at risk for academic and social delays that may be attributed to poverty and inadequate parenting. Three issues are at the core of our discussion: (1) the manner in which the rcp contributes to strengthening the care environment of young impoverished children at risk for developmental delays; (2) key aspects of the rcp model that may be credited with successful outcomes in children, families and the community; and (3) the main challenges confronting the rcp model as it is being implemented more broadly across different Caribbean nations.
