We know that parents are the most important influence on a child’s emotional, social, cognitive and language development. How parents interact with their children plays a key role in the child’s overall development. Helping parents provide their very young children with a secure, responsive and stimulating environment lays the foundation for the child to develop to her/his potential.
The Goals of the Program
- To give parents specific ways of connecting and communicating with their child/ren that they can use during everyday activities so they can foster their child/ren’s development;
- Provide group support
- Help parents recognize that they have the ability to foster their child’s development, with a focus on social and language development;
- Build parents’ confidence in their children’s development.
- Raises parents’ awareness of any developmental needs their child may have so that they can be linked with other services, as required.
