For Parents and Carers with Babies 0-6 months.
If is a fun course for first time parents and carers with babies 0-6 months who live in Flintshire. We meet for two hours every week for 7 weeks and it is free to everyone.
Parents must be able to attend all the sessions as this ensures that everyone gets the very best from the course. A certificate of attendance is given to those that attend at least five sessions.
During the sessions we talk about what it is like to be a parent and discuss ways to build on the relationships we have with our children. Through group discussions and looking at video clips we identify ways to get the best out of family life. We recognise that becoming a parent is so important and that we all need to know what a great job we are doing.
Confidentiality is paramount and each group sets out its own rules and expectations. The leaders do not share information to other professionals or organisations. What is discussed in the group stays in the group.
For Parents and Carers of Children Aged 1-3 years
It is a fun course for parents and carers of children aged 1-3 years who live in Flintshire. It runs for ten weeks and is free of charge. We offer a free crèche to those that are unable to arrange childcare; places are booked on a first come first served basis.
The course leaders are fully trained and have a wealth of experience of working with parents.
The course aims to help parents ‘get the best out of family life’ by providing parents with information and ideas on not only how to prevent difficult behaviour, but also how we can promote their social and emotional development.
