Spanish term or phrase: desarrollo integral
Se refiere a la educación: Historial Inicial del Desarrollo Integral del Niño

También necesito saber: servicios educativos integrales

Un millón :)
Maria Paz
English translation:integral, comprehensive
Explanation:
From Diccionario del Español Actual, de Manuel Seco:
integral: que comprende la totalidad de los aspectos o partes de la cosa en cuestión.
integrado: constituido por distintos elementos que forman un todo homogéneo.
From Webster's:
integrated: combining or coordinating separate elements so as to provide a harmonious, interrelated whole.
comprehensive, inclusive: including a great deal or including everything concerned.
integral: necessary to the completeness of the whole.
You are dealing with "integral", not "integrado".
I think "comprehensive" conveys the meaning you need.
Hope it helps, best regards.

extra background


Explanation:
full, integrated, comprehensive development
Here's more background: by the late 1960s or so the notion of "desarrollo integral" was being used as a critique of merely economic development (as measured in cash terms). The term was taken up and became a cliche and is now part of vocabulary. Interestlingly, World Bank glossary does not include it per se, but they do have it for "integrated farm development" or something like that.
Since there's no exact English equivalent and has become a cliche you have to go with context.
I sometimes like comprehensive, & suggest you think about "comprehensive education services"

integrated child development


Explanation:
A. Tons of refs - see these two as examples:

1. http://www.google.com/search?q=cache:www.worldbank.org/child...

Programs may also need to define eligibility criteria for services offered to mothers. India, for instance, considers women who are pregnant, lactating, or between the ages of fifteen and forty-five eligible for ***Integrated Child Development*** Services

2. http://www.google.com/search?q=cache:www.ecdgroup.com/meetin...

The Third Symposium on Programs of ***Integrated Child Development*** in Contexts of Poverty was held in San Jose Costa Rica from September 25th to 29th.


B.integrated education services:

http://www.google.com/search?q=integrated education services...
students with an emphasis on literacy instruction, ****integrated (health and) education
services*** (including mental health issues, substance abuse, and violence

There is a difference betwwen comprehensive (all inclusive) and integrated (interlinked)
