Parent Education

 

We are proud of the six national programmes that we run throughout our Centres nationwide. Parent education programmes aim to assist parents with the various ages and stages of their children, giving them the knowledge and skill sets to be effective. The programmes are well supported by volunteers within each Centre as well as invited speakers who are knowledgeable about a wide variety of topics. Look out for your local Centre newsletter or visit a Centre near you for more information about parent education programmes in your area - and remember to register early to avoid missing out!

One-off parenting sessions


Many of our Centres also offer one-off parenting sessions, such as toilet training, choking and CPR, natural fertility, sessions for dads and child development (including the renowned Brainwave Trust seminars). These sessions vary throughout the Centres and are dependent on local needs and requests.  Taking advantage of these programmes will enhance parenting skills and give you valuable support and information.

Contact your local Centre to find out their timetable of upcoming events.
