As an individual, you could attend the Parenting Group Facilitator’s Training instead, which will also equip you to run our groups for parents: the Antenatal Parenting group, Postnatal Parenting Group, Postnatal Plus Parenting group and ‘Understanding your child’s behaviour’. Just make sure you have the right Facilitator’s Manual!

If you have already completed the 1 day Solihull Approach Parenting Group Facilitators' Training then you do not need to do this specific training.

The Facilitators’ Manual is necessary for both facilitators.

Session 3: Understanding your baby’s rhythms and developing healthy sleep patterns

Session 4: Understanding your baby’s feeding

Session 5: Understanding your baby’s play and development

To run this group you need to have completed a 2 Day Foundation Training and a Parenting Group Facilitators training.
