The Child and Family Health Service acknowledges Aboriginal people as the First Peoples and Traditional Custodians of Country throughout South Australia. We acknowledge and respect their ongoing and deep spiritual connection and relationship to land, air, sea, waters, community and country. We pay our respect to their Elders past, present and emerging.

Early Parenting Group topics

Where to from here

Parents/caregivers may develop bonds and relationships during their Early Parenting Groups. You may like to continue to meet after you have finished your Early Parenting Groups at a park, playgroup, library or community centre.

If you would like your details to be shared with other members of your Early Parenting Group, please let your nurse facilitator know so that this opportunity can be discussed at one of your group sessions.

Below are websites that offer more information on child health, development and wellbeing, and opportunities for meeting with other families with young children.
