Incredible Years Parent Programme – 3 – 8 yrs
Why do it? No one says parenting is easy and yet we are expected to naturally know how to do it. If you feel that you would like some extra help with the most important job you have ever faced, then this could be the programme for you! Extended whanau, partners, grandparents, all welcome.
What is it? A free 14 week programme designed for whanau/parents of preschool and primary school-aged children who have difficulty managing their behaviour. It supports parents to develop the skills that improve children’s social skills and reduce behaviour problems.
For example, parents learn how to:
- support the development of social, emotional, academic, and persistence skills
- play with their children
- promote responsibility
- teach their children to problem solve
- manage misbehaviour
- use praise and incentives to shift behaviour
- set effective limits
- establish predictable routines and rules
This programme will help you to develop more confidence and effective skills as a parent.
It will help you to better manage the everyday challenges of being a parent and develop better relationships within your family, bringing the fun back into being a parent.
How does it run?
The Incredible Years Parent Programme is a 14 week programme where parents and caregivers meet for two and a half hour sessions. Through discussion, role-plays and watching videos about common challenging situations, the group will develop a greater understanding of positive parenting strategies and how to apply them. The programme will help you recognise your strengths and practise new skills which you then can apply at home.
Who runs it?
The Incredible Years Parent Programme is run by experienced Resource Teachers of Learning and Behaviour (RTLB) who are specially trained facilitators. All materials are provided. A creche for younger children will be available.
Venue: Bayfield Primary
Dates: 21st Feb – 6th June 2023 – Tuesday mornings
Time: 9.30 am to 12.00 pm
If you are interested contact us – numbers are limited.

Auckland City Mission – Auckland Angels Annual Appeal
Over the next five weeks, Newton Central School will be collecting for the Auckland City Mission. All tamariki are encouraged to bring in: good quality non-perishable food items, special holiday food items and NEW, UNWRAPPED presents. Just think, if every Newton whānau brings in an item of food each week and one present, we will have collected over 250 presents for children who might not otherwise get something this year and more than 1000 items of food!!! As the cost of living crisis deepens, we know this will be another tough holiday break for many Aucklanders. Please give generously for those in need this festive season.
