Wirrabirra Partnership With Child And Parent Centre – Bringing Up Great Kids

Just a reminder that starting this Monday there will be a four week program from 9 am to 11 am each Monday 31 July and 7, 14, 21 August titled “Bringing up Great Kids”. The venue will be our Library. It is an interactive four week program giving you time to reflect on the very important job of parenting. You will be
provided with a fun relaxed approach and an opportunity to spend time with other parents to discover practical ways to:

Build strong, positive relationships within your family

Support your child’s brain development, social and
emotional well being

Listen and respond to messages from your child

Encourage resilience

Parents, step parents, adoptive parents, foster parents and grandparents – in fact anyone involved in raising children can all benefit from this strength based approach developed by the
Australian Childhood Foundation. A free crèche is available on request. Please RSVP by tomorrow by phoning 93988720 (Child and Parent Centre) .

A further initiative coming soon is the setting up of a Three Year Old Kindy group. This is designed to provide those children
coming to Wirrabirra Kindergarten next year with a transition to school early learning program. Details will be sent to all families with children enrolling in Kindergarten for 2018. If you haven’t or know of someone who hasn’t enrolled their child for Kindergarten next year, please contact the front office for details.
