HeadStart Parenting Courses

HeadStart Newham offers a range of free peer led courses for parents interested in learning new parenting skills.

“Being a Parent” Courses:
Empowering Parents, Empowering Communities

In a safe setting, parents can talk to other parents about their experiences and work through their concerns in a non-judgmental space. This peer-led parenting course helps parents support each other in the development of emotional resilience in their children by exploring themes including understanding feelings, managing behaviour, developing skills in listening, setting boundaries and building in family quality time.

Parents who complete a course and the workbook to OCN Level 2 then have the opportunity to be trained, supervised and paid to facilitate future courses.

Online Resilience Workshops

Parents can attend a 2 hour workshop to better understand the online world children live in, learn practical approaches to keep children safe online and build the knowledge and confidence to talk with children about online safety.

HeadStart Newham Parent and Community Forums

A supportive group of Newham parents who come together to share their experiences, to work through their parenting concerns in a safe, non-judgmental space, and to learn new skills to build their child’s emotional resilience.
