Parent Education and Support Programs
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.
Due to the COVID-19 lockdown we are currently unable to run face-to-face parent education and support programs, however we are still offering free online courses while the lockdown continues.
We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation and following NSW Government directives. We will advise our community via our website and social media when some or all of our face-to-face parent education programs are able to recommence safely and in line with NSW Health Public Health Orders.
