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 number of education and support programs each year to provide parents and carers with information and support on aspects of parenting, as well as the social, emotional and communication tools to help develop their parenting skills. Our parenting courses are often run in collaboration with external expert agencies.

The courses help parents to be more sensitive to their child’s emotions and more able to positively guide their behaviour, better understand their child’s needs, and to be calm and more purposeful in their play and interactions with their child.

In March we had to cancel all of our parenting programs due to COVID-19, but as restrictions now begin to ease we are now planning to offer some courses in Term 3 2020, the first of which is a six week online Tuning in to Kids program.
