Our programmes give support, advice and guidance to parents and carers living in Rochdale. They are a great way to help understand different behaviours and development stages of your baby, child or teenager.
All our programmes are given by trained professionals who understand the joys and problems of bringing up children. They can help you find new ways so you can work with your children to solve any concerns. You will be encouraged to build upon your skills and learn from other parents/carers. Our programmes are planned to be learning and fun.
Programmes are on throughout the year in mornings, afternoons and evenings.
