'You can have all the money in the world and the highest IQ, but can never predict how your baby will be’ - Parent in Bognor Regis
Each interactive session will be 45 mins and include a question & answer section. Parents can choose two topics from five key sessions. These sessions will be:
* School Readiness
* A Parent and Child Activity
These fun and interactive sessions will help local mums and dads to:
* Develop tools and skills to improve their child(ren)'s wellbeing as well as their own
* Interact with their child(ren) during play, including ideas around creative, low or no-cost activities.
* Understand how to help progress their child(ren)'s development
* Engage with other parents
What we'll deliver:
- Provide a day of interactive and practical sessions around parenting and wellbeing
- A fun and practical way for parents to develop their parenting skills
Why it's a great idea:
Home-Start believes that mums and dads are the first and most important influence on their child’s development and future outcomes. Interactions that take place in the home environment have more influence on a child’s future achievement than innate ability, material circumstances or the quality of early years or school provision. This is why we meet with parents and their child(ren) in the home. The role that mums and dads play in supporting their child’s development is key to making a difference in their children’s outcomes.
This project will give local parents access to local professionals to learn practical skills to help their child's development as well as improve their own wellbeing. They will also be able to meet with other parents and carers. Home-Start believes that this project will help parents to give their child(ren) the best possible start in life.
The day will also help parents identify if they would like extra support from Home-Start.
Steps to get it done:
- Securing Sessional Trainers
- Securing a venue
- Release session information
- Marketing the event
