The Parenting Partnership is a free prenatal and parenting education program developed for first time expectant couples. The program combines both web sessions on The Parenting Partnership Program website and face-to-face classes and includes topics on pregnancy, childbirth, post partum, couple relationships, parenting and child development. Parents begin the program prior to the mother's third trimester and continue with the program until their baby is about 14 months old. The program is facilitated by a health practitioner and a counselor/parenting expert. This is a pilot program that is being tested in the following locations across Ontario: London, Pembroke,
Peterborough, Toronto and GTA.
We are looking to recruit first time expectant parents who are expecting their baby between mid December 2008 and the month of January 2009. Parents can register by calling 416-977-1222 or toll free at 1-877-583-5437. Further information is available at http://www.theparentingpartnership.ca.
We are hoping that you will pass this information along to any first time expectant parents. For further information about the program please contact Karon Foster, Director of The Parenting Partnership at 416-977-1222 ext 222 or [email protected].
