PARENT CHILD PLUS PROGRAMME
Parent Child Plus Programme, is a home based numeracy and literacy parenting programme that strengthens families and prepares children to succeed academically and become a life- long learner.
It is a targeted programme for children aged 16mths to 3 years (approx.). This programme employs local people as Home Visitors and trains them to deliver the programme.
Over a two year period, Home Visitors model oral language, reading and play in their twice weekly visits( 92 visits in all). Families participation on the programme is voluntary and is provided at no costs to the families.
The Parent Child Plus Programme vision is that every child enters school ready to succeed, because every parent has the knowledge and resources to build school readiness where it starts: in the home environment. This is an evidence based programme that promotes language development and therefore is really beneficial for any toddlers/ children who need extra support with their language development.
Our home visitors work in the mornings and afternoons and can accommodate a child attending a crèche in most cases. (Available to families in Clondalkin, Balgaddy and Adamstown)
Currently we have spaces for all of the above please get in touch if you have any questions or referrals for either programme.
