Our FREE parenting courses help you to meet and hear from parents going through experiences similar to yours. They are a great way to learn, grow and tackle some of the challenging things that you face as a parent, or in your family life.

Who runs them?

Our FREE parenting courses are run by parent educators. Experienced facilitators with years of expertise in helping parents manage the ups and downs of raising children, they have varied professional backgrounds. From psychology to social work, to counselling and early childhood qualifications, our facilitators are supportive and non-judgemental. Trained to help people apply evidence based strategies that are known to work for the unique aspects of each individual family, our parent educators believe that people can build on their strengths and aim for good enough parenting, not perfect parenting!
