About us - What We Do
Early Start is a home visiting service for families/whānau with newborn babies where difficult situations have the potential to negatively impact on the life chances of children in their care.
We encourage and support families/whānau to provide each of their children with a positive and enjoyable childhood experience.
Early Start uses a planned, focused and systematic approach to intervention and intends to enable enrolled families/whānau to:
- To learn and apply nurturing parenting practices
- To discover personal strengths and abilities
- To develop new skills and practices
- To support healthy lifestyle change
