Free help and lunch


Parents and caregivers wanting extra support can sign up for a free training session next Tuesday. 

Strategies with Kids, Information for Parents (SKIP) is hosting it for parents of children under five and people working with parents in the community. 

Queenstown Lakes Family Centre’s Maria Hendry says: “The SKIP vision is all children are raised in a positive way, with parents and caregivers who feel confident about managing behaviour as part of a loving and nurturing relationship.” 

“SKIP focuses on the needs of everyone in the family – where they live, who they live with and their environment. It’s strengths-based. No one is an expert.” 

It’s at St Peter’s Church hall from 10am-3pm and includes a free lunch. Register in advance at Queens-town Lakes Family Centre.
