Naître et grandir

Naître et grandir is both a magazine and a website created to provide parents with support in bringing up their children, from the time they are conceived until they are 8 years old. Short, practical articles checked for scientific accuracy are written in easy-to-read, accessible language.

Several subjects are covered, including development, play, education, health, nutrition and psychology. Naître et grandir is completely ad-free and committed to total independence of content.

Naître et grandir campaigns are aimed at increasing the awareness of parents and Quebec society as a whole of the importance of fostering the development of children from their earliest age in order to create conditions and environments that are favourable to their educational success.

A magazine and a website

Over 270,000 copies of the magazine are distributed free of charge (nine issues a year) in over 4,600 locations throughout Quebec: CPEs (publicly funded daycare centres), health and social service organizations (CLSCs, family medicine groups, hospitals, youth centres), kindergartens, libraries and several community organizations.

Naître et grandir is also the 62 million pages visited every year on its website. One of the site's most original features is a timeline that allows parents to track their children's affective, motor, intellectual and social development during the periods of pregnancy, 0 to 12 months, 1 to 3 years, 3 to 5 years and 5 to 8 years.

It is also possible to receive a personalized weekly newsletter with information that applies to a specific age, so that parents can follow their child's development every step of the way. Over 180,000 parents currently subscribe to this service. (Please note that the newsletter is currently available in French only.)

Naître et grandir  also distributes content and maintains contact with parents on social networks such as Facebook, InstagramTwitterPinterest and YouTube. The Naître et grandir Facebook page current has over 285,000 "likes."

A social operation

Every fall since 2009, Naître et grandir has launched a major social campaign aimed at making parents aware of the importance of stimulating their child starting at the very earliest age. These campaigns are in the form of publicity in the media and events throughout Quebec.

Over the years, campaign themes have been very varied:
