Infant Community

Infant Community Parent education.

Parent education is an inherent component of the delivery of all Infant Community programs and much of the reason the community exists. 

However, particular topics warrant dedicated sessions. For this reason Infant Community Directors host a toileting workshop each term and often one other evening event covering a key topic.
