Annual parent education and support programs

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.

We wish to advise all of our families and supporters that we have cancelled all of our current parenting programs until further notice to comply with Government directives to limit non-essential gatherings due to the coronavirus.

At present we are unsure of when these programs will recommence. We will continue to monitor and follow the advice provided by the relevant authorities as the situation evolves. We will inform you via our social media platforms and our website of the reopening of our parenting programs when this becomes possible.
