We know that parenting can be hard and challenging. That’s why we run programs to help you develop skills to raise happy, healthy and resilient children.
Who we help
Our programs help parents and families with babies and children in school.
How we help
We run different types of groups and programs to help parents in different stages of life. They focus on different areas of child development and parenting skills.
Here are some of the programs we run:
Tuning into Kids: Tuning into Kids is an emotion-focused parenting program. It provides parents and carers with skills to ‘tune in to’ their child’s emotions, while managing their own.
Circles of Security: This program is based on decades of research about how secure parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened.
Bringing up Great Kids: The more we understand our children the more we can help and support them. One of the ways we can do this is to think about memories of our own childhood and imagine the world from a child’s point of view.
123 Magic: This program is based on establishing the role of parenting consisting of three tasks – working with behaviours that are based on communication, encouraging good behaviours and strengthening the parent-child relationship.
