The Incredible Years basic parenting programme is for parents and caregivers of children 3–8 years old.
It is designed to develop positive family relationships and empower parents to make changes and to manage difficult behaviour.
To attend this course you need to:
The Incredible Years Parenting Programme consists of one session per week for 14–16 weeks. Each session is normally two and a half hours long.
Daytime courses do not run during the school holidays, but evening courses do.
Before the course begins a facilitator will ring you to organise a visit to complete pre-course paperwork and discuss your needs.
This is a free programme. Courses are funded by a variety of sources including the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Health and grants.
Assistance with paying for childcare and transport may be available depending on our funding and your personal circumstances.
We normally offer a number of morning courses throughout the Wellington region. We also try and run at least one evening course a year. We usually start new courses in February/March and July/August.
