A new SPACE group – Supporting Parents and Children’s Education – will start at Warkworth Playcentre from July 26 and run during school term time until April 22.
The group will cater for mothers with babies born between April and July this year. Fathers or other caregivers of newborns are also welcome to attend. Facilitator Michelle Esposti says SPACE provides a forum where parents learn parenting skills while interacting with their babies. Topics covered include sleeping, the developing brain, nutrition, music and play.
“We believe parents are the most important educators of their children and upon receiving information can make an informed choice that will best suit their family,” Michelle says.
Sessions run on Monday afternoons from noon to 2.30pm.
