Starting Out Programme

The Starting Out Programme runs over 6 weeks and is designed to increase parents’ knowledge and understanding of their child’s Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED) and Physical Development (PD).

The programme is flexible, supporting each child’s individual needs and working alongside families to empower parents in creating opportunities to provide learning through play within the home environment.

Each week’s focus consists of activities that will increase parental understanding of how children experience, express and manage emotions and develop meaningful relations with others.

Starting Out supports parents and carers to build a healthy and positive relationship with their child.

Core programme aims:

  • to improve a child’s Presonal, Social and Emotional Development and Physical Development
  • to improve a child’s home learning environment 
  • Parents/carers will gain an increased knowledge and understanding of the importance  of a child’s brain development from 0 to 5 years
