What is the EPEC Being a Parent Course?

The Empowering Parents Empowering Children (EPEC) Being a Parent course aims to improve child development and outcomes, parenting, family resilience and family relationships. The Being a Parent course creates a trusting group ethos, where parents are encouraged and supported to explore:

• Positive behaviour management and discipline strategies.

• Managing parent and family stress.

• Understanding and managing children’s feelings.

• Parent listening, communication, play and interaction skills.

• Attachment and parent-child relationships.

• Parenting roles, expectations and culture.

Why is it different?

The Being a Parent Course runs over 8 weeks and is completely free. In addition to the course, a free on site crèche is offered each session. It is run by accredited parent volunteers who have completed the EPEC training course. They receive ongoing support and supervision from the EPEC Hub. Their experiences, backgrounds, skills and qualities make each session inviting and engaging.

Who is the course for?

The Being a Parent Course is aimed at parents in Havering who have one or more children between the ages of 2 to 5 years. The course content relates well to becoming school ready and is recognised by pre-schools, nurseries, early years settings, children’s centres and schools in the London Borough of Havering.

Before the Being a Parent Course begins there is a coffee session where you can learn more about what is involved and meet the other parents that are interested in coming.

Please do let Mrs Stanley know if you will be attending.
