Parenting Courses via Zoom

** All zoom courses running in November 2020 are fully booked.
We will made booking available for Spring courses available in the New Year.
For now we are sorry we cannot facilitate anymore parents in 2020 on zoom.

Throughout COVID-19 restrictions One Family’s Parenting Team continue to offer group-based parenting courses. When you sign up to join a Zoom parenting course you are joining a live weekly group. The group will be facilitated by a member of the Parenting Team, you will meet other parents and work through the course content over 1 hour per week for a maximum of 8 weeks.

We will try to not exceed 16 parents in any one group, allowing opportunities for each parent to share, ask questions and fully engage with the course material.

At the end of the course we will issue you with a Certificate of Attendance if you have attended and engaged throughout the course. You may also be offered an opportunity for 1-1 parenting support if you or the facilitator feel that will be helpful for your personal situation.

The facilitator will also ensure you are aware of other supports available to you in One Family and further opportunities to engage with us.
