About

The Infant Attention and Development Team (EDAI) is a label that gathers various working units dedicated to the health and wellbeing of children and their families.

EDAI Early Years

EDAI
Early Years

EDAI was created in 2006. In the beginning the social site of the organisation was located in the neighbourhood of Sant Gervasi Galvany, offering psychological services for children and adolescents and their families. In 2008, the Generalitat de Catalunya sponsored EDAI with the management of three Centres for Early Childhood Development Services in the disctricts of Les Corts-Sarrià and Sant Martí in Barcelona, and Sant Adrià de Besós. The social site then moved to Les Corts, in the CDIAP EDAI Les Corts-Sarrià.

At the same time, EDAI also manages other services: EDAI Health & Family and EDAI Early Years.
