Who runs them?

Our 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!
