Families Growing Together Workshops

Our workshops are relaxed and informal. We can present them face-to-face or by webinar.

Parents and caregivers are provided with information and simple, practical strategies based on the latest parenting research and information from Parenting SA. We include videos, activities, and time for parents and caregivers to talk in small groups.

All our workshops are free.

Face-to-face workshops are around 2 to 3 hours (including a break). Webinars are 1 to 2 hours.
