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.

Part II of Movement 
Wednesday 24th March, 2021
6.30pm – 8.00pm

In Part II we will discuss the intricacies of the importance of how the spine, hip and shoulder all develop in the early days and the long term effect of that on us in adulthood. 
 
For parents, this will be a fascinating discovery into your child’s development and how you can support it. It will also be an absolute eye opener on your own body and how it works…or doesn’t!
 
The session is full of interesting facts, practical demonstrations and suggestions of things to do for your child and you.
