Your Early Education Advocate will provide you with current information to help you increase your child's learning skills. Brochures and videos on discipline, school readiness, parent-child relationships, and even potty-training are available for home use. A parent's involvement is key to your child's success in school and life. You are their first teacher.
Nurturing Parenting Program:
Early Education Advocates provide Nurturing Parenting classes right in your home. Nurturing Parenting can help teach you how to use discipline with dignity, understand the expectations of your child's development, and how to make good choices to keep your children safe.
Our District Nurse will make home visits to discuss your child's developmental milestones and provide prenatal, infant and toddler nutrition education. A Home Visitor will bring educational games into your home with interactive lessons designed to help parents develop their child's physical, emotional, and learning skills. Weekly community playgroups provide a social setting for children to play with others while their parents discuss issues with guest health and childcare professionals.
Health Referrals and Consultations:
Referrals for medical and dental care, mental health counseling, immunization clinics, nutrition classes, vision screening and hearing checks are provided by the Home Visitor. The District Nurse can provide early identification of health or developmental concerns and referrals for early intervention of services.
Basic Family Needs:
When a parent is overwhelmed with life's stressors, it becomes difficult to concentrate on parenting. Your Home Visitor can help link you to resources for emergency, legal and basic needs, and provide one-on-one support in nutrition and money management.
