Parents as Teachers

ODEEP offers the very successful Parents as Teachers Program to all parents in the Orange, Cabonne and Blayney region. Each week parents with new babies from birth to 12 months will meet with other new parents along with the ODEEP educator. Families have the opportunity to interact with other families and share common parenting concerns or accomplishments.  Each session will provide an opportunity to learn about and receive information relating to a different area of child development. Practical demonstrations and hands on involvement will assist in ways to actively stimulate your baby's development.  Throughout the play there is further opportunity to share and discuss the joys and challenges that may arise in this age group.

Families with babies from birth to 12 months of age are encouraged to participate. They may remain in the program until the child is two and a half to three years old.

Parents as Teachers groups are built on the idea of community. We invite anyone who would like to learn more about Teachers as Parents at ODEEP to come see our work in action at one of our sessions. If interested please call 02 6361 4093.
