What is The Incredible Years?
The lovely group of ladies that completed our last IY programe in December 2016, with Claire from Barnados.
The Incredible Years Parenting Programme was developed by Carolyn Webster-Stratton within the University of Washington Parenting Clinic.
The programme, aimed at children aged 3 to 12 years, is founded on social learning theory and consists of at least 5 weekly, two-hour group sessions delivered by skilled practitioners.
Overall, the Incredible Years Programme aims to:
The programme uses a collaborative approach, encouraging parents to learn from each other. Methods used include role play, modelling, group discussion, homework and reviewing DVDs of family behaviour. Practical support is an important element of each group.
At Newtownards Nursery we begin by running the 5 week school readiness programme. This takes place on an afternoon, after nursery, and school staff provide a creche for your child and their younger siblings. Both the programme and the creche are free of charge and refreshments are provided for both children and adults.
