Parenting Programmes & Support

Love comes naturally to most parents, but everyone faces difficulties at some point – from babies who will not sleep at night, toddlers who throw tantrums to unruly teenagers. The Sunshine Centre offers a rolling program of parenting courses throughout the year, programmes which build on parents’ individual skills so they can give their children the best start in life.

Staff are fully trained to deliver a range of evidenced based parenting programmes.
