For 2-4 year olds

Incredible Years Preschool Parent Programme

We run Incredible Years Preschool Parent Programme courses throughout the year. The programme runs 2 hour weekly sessions for 14 weeks in school term time. We also provide a free crèche for any other preschool children you may have. These courses support parents and carers with the following:

  • building their child’s language, academic, emotional and social skills to help them become ready for school
  • supporting their child to develop independent behaviours and routines, such as mealtimes, bedtimes, getting dressed and following house rules
  • managing behaviours such as tantrums, defiance and aggression

More information about this course can be found on our website

  • supporting with specific difficulties with feeding, sleep and toileting
  • supporting parents and carers of children with high levels of anxiety, including separation anxiety and specific phobias
  • understanding behaviour in children with additional needs
  • supporting children who have experience difficult early starts in life and understanding how this might impact their wellbeing and behaviour. This includes supporting carers who have Special Guardianship Orders
