Antenatal care and education is vital for good birth outcomes. We are working with our partners the Rotunda Hospital and the HSE to provide antenatal care and education classes in local health and community centres.

Our family mentors work alongside parents from pregnancy to when the child starts school.

We visit families in their homes and give information on child development and parenting, with the aim of improving school readiness.

From toddler tantrums to a teenager’s defiance, from bedtime dramas to outright disobedience, Triple P helps you work through the issues that affect families everywhere. We are currently offering Triple P Positive Parenting Programme to all parents of children aged 0 – 12 years old who are living in our target area.

We train and mentor early years educators to deliver best outcomes for children.

Our Strengthening Foundations of Learning approach focuses on developing the following areas of early years practice:

  • Curriculum
  • Oral Language
  • Leadership
  • Transition to School

Our Schools Programme works to improve learning outcomes for children and to equip them with life skills that will help them to achieve their full potential. We do this by providing on-site, customised professional development and mentoring for teachers in proven literacy and self-regulation programmes.

Preparing for Life’s Home Visiting Programme is now open to all families expecting a new baby who live within our target area.
