Providing knowledge and tools to improve parenting skills

Parent education and support programs annually

The Infants’ Home runs a series of twelve 6-8 week parent education and support programs annually to provide parents and carers with knowledge as well as social, emotional and communication tools to improve their parenting skills.

Courses are often run in collaboration with external expert agencies. The courses can help families be more sensitive to their child’s emotions, better understand their needs, and to be calm and more purposeful in their play and interactions with their child.
