Parenting Support

Parenting programmes

We run parenting programmes, which may include topics such as:

  • promoting positive parenting
  • coping with/managing children’s behaviour
  • developing routines
  • potty training
  • sleeping problems
  • other common parenting issues

One-to-one and group sessions

As well as the group sessions, you are welcome to talk to Flying Start staff on a one-to-one basis in order to discuss any aspect of parenting.  If you want they can be arranged as part of a community group or in your own home.

Parent nurture group programmes

We also provide a range of nurture programmes that supports parents/carers to build on positive relationships in their lives and learning.
