Incredible Years

Families/whānau who are working with Early Start have the opportunity
to attend the Incredible Years Toddler group programme.


In the Parents and Toddlers Basic Programme, parents learn how to:

  • Help their toddlers feel loved and secure
  • Encourage their toddler’s language, social, and emotional development
  • Establish clear and predictable routines
  • Handle separations and reunions
  • Use positive discipline to manage misbehaviour

The parents group format fosters peer support networks and shared learning.  Trained Incredible Years facilitators use video clips and real-life situational vignettes to support the training and stimulate parenting group discussion and problems solving practices.
