The Child and Parent Centre – Collie Valley together with The Collie Family Centre, Maidens Park Primary School and the Child and Parent Centre – Carey Park are very excited to be facilitating the very first Incredible Years (IY) program over term 1 and 2. This amazing program has been delivered internationally for over 30 years and is now being run right here in Collie and Bunbury for the very first time in Western Australia!
IY is an evidence-based program which was created for parents, children and teachers that has been supported by over 30 years of research. This 14 week series of interlocking programs has a goal to prevent and treat young children’s behaviour problems and promote their social, emotional and academic competence.
We are now 4 weeks in to the first IY program and are very happy to have such a lovely bunch of parents who are committed to being the very best they can be. Our sessions are a lot of fun, relaxed and there are even prizes and incentives each week along with a yummy lunch provided for all. A free crèche is also available for each session.
IY will be running again in the second semester over term 3 and 4, and expressions of interest are now being taken – please contact Carole or Bonnie on 9734 3364.
