Parenting Support Program

Helping parents raise confident and happy children

Child Care Services Taree & Districts Inc. Parenting Support Program is a free service available to all parents, grandparents and carers in the Taree, Forster and Gloucester areas.


Parenthood can be extremely rewarding, enlightening and enjoyable, however it can also be demanding, frustrating and exhausting.

Parents have the role of raising the next generation yet moist parents begin with little preparation and learn through trial and error.


All parents want to raise confident, happy children and it takes a lot of understanding to build strong positive relationships with their children.


These programs are designed to give flexible delivery to meet the individual needs of every family.


Bringing up great kids


Bringing up great kids has been especially designed for the busy parent presented in weekly sessions over six weeks. Bringing up great kids is a fun program that focuses on how parents communicate with their children and building good relationships with children. It offers opportunities for parents to learn about how their children understand and use messages they receive from their parents. The program gives the parent a chance to walk in their children’s shoes. Bringing Up Great Kids was developed for parents with children 10 years and under. Bringing Up Great Kids has been developed by the Australian Children’s Foundation.


Positive Parenting Program - Triple P


Triple P is presented in weekly sessions over 8 weeks. 6 weeks face to face and 2 weeks phone support.

Triple P aims to make parenting easier by offering ideas and suggestions on positive parenting methods to help parents enjoy being a parent and assist children’s development.

It is up to each parent to decide what values and skills they would like their children to have and how they will teach them.

Triple P has been helpful to many parents in giving useful ideas and strategies to deal with behaviour and to help parents meet the challenges of raising children.

Triple P is an initiative of Parenting and Family Support Centre at The University of Queensland.
