  • Parent Education and Skill Development

    Parent Education and Skill Development

    Parents who join our informal discussion groups and our pre-registered education and skill development groups have increased knowledge of child development. They are more aware of health, safety and discipline issues and know about ‘best practices’ in parenting. Parental skill development opportunities are an integral part of our centre programming – “learning more about my child’s temperament”...”listening and focusing on what I can do to change behavior positively.

  • Outreach and Early Intervention Services

    Outreach and Early Intervention Services

    Through outreach strategies families who would not necessarily access community resources are enabled to attend flexible drop-in activities, make use of much needed concrete services (food, clothing, toys and books). They begin to build relationships with others and access additional resources to support themselves and their children.

  • Community Referral and Information

    Community Referral and Information

    Parents accessing our referral and information resources are linked to their community, building a wider supportive network for themselves and for their children. Children who require extra supports (for example speech and language assessment, health information) are identified, referred to appropriate resources and very importantly, staff at the centre support families during the process.
