Parenting Courses

Parenting is not easy, it can be tough, lonely and frustrating.  Parents often feel overwhelmed and unsure about what to do.

The Family Support offers a range of parenting courses that may be suitable for you.  Courses range from one off workshops (2 hours), 2 week, 6 week and 8 week programs looking at children’s behaviour and how you can manage this, tantrums, the what and why of emotions and general topics such as nutrition, sleeping, starting school.

They are run by experienced Early Childhood Educators who are there to provide a confidential and non judgemental environment for participants who are looking to learn new skills, improve on what you already know and realise that you are not alone.

These programs aim to increase a parent’s knowledge of the emotions behind your child’s behaviour and looks at opportunities to further connect as well as enhance your child’s emotional development. Focussing on the emotional connection between parents and children. Programs show parents skills to recognise, understand and respond to children’s emotions in an accepting and supportive way. This approach helps the child to understand and manage their own emotions.   Strategies are given to assist with managing behaviour and follow up support can be provided.

We aim to work with families to increase you confidence when parenting and reduce your stress and anxiety.

The courses are facilitated at the centre and childcare is provided on site by qualified workers, they are 2 hours in duration with a coffee break.
