Parental Support in Early Years

Each of CDI’s programmes has a parental component, as we recognise the central role that parents and carers play in children’s lives and development.

CDI supports nine early years’ services through the provision of a   dedicated  Parent/Carer  Facilitator  (PCF),  whose sole responsibility 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.
