Incredible Years Parenting programme

Tracy and Laura both deliver the Incredible years programme throughout the year to both mums and dads. This fantastic programme helps promote a loving calm relationship between parent and child and encourages only positive behaviour from the child.

Our Incredible years programme started today with breakfast, programme packs and information and basic introductions, next week we start into the full programme with child directed play.
We believe in this programme after seeing the amazing difference it makes in children's life. we don't tell you how to parent we share tips and offer advice and new approaches, we want every child to have the best start in life they can.

we would love more of our parents to come along and join us ensuring your child becomes the best they can be.
we have a little space reserved for children during the session and both the class and childcare is free.

please speak to Laura on 02891478292 asap if you would like to come along.
