Powerful Parenting – Support in Early Years
Powerful Parenting, support in Early Years
Parental engagement is central to CDI’s work and we recognise the fundamental role parents play in children’s lives and development.
CDI supports eight early years’ services in Tallaght through the provision of dedicated Parent/Carer Facilitators (PCF) in the Early Learning and Care Service. The role of the Parent Care Facilitator is to work with the parents of the children in the service by identifying needs, offering support to address any issues and promote the achievement of children’s developmental milestones.
The PCF role has been demonstrated to reduce parental stress, improve relationships between parents and their children and support a positive home learning environment.
