The ‘Growing Families’ courses that we facilitate at UniHill Church are through the Growing Families organisation, they are Christian based, practical courses, that cover parenting from newborns to 3 years of age.
Within that range, there are 4 courses and they are as follows:
Preparation for Parenting (0 – 5 months) – Getting a baby to sleep through the night is not “rocket science.” To the contrary, it is one of the most natural outcomes associated with a basic feed-wake-sleep routine. The results are consistent. Happy, healthy, contented babies, sleeping through the night on average between seven and nine weeks of age. Learn how by registering your interest via our contact tab.
Babyhood Transitions (5 months – 12 months) – You are four months into your tour of parenting and now your baby’s day is filled with sensory stimulation and learning opportunities. With age-appropriate modifications the three activities of your baby’s day: feeding time, waketime and naptime expand with benefits and challenges. From introducing solid foods to introducing the playpen and everything in between—it is all covered in four comprehensive video sessions.
Preparation for the Toddler years (12 months – 18 months) – The developmental phase between twelve to eighteen months is a season of exchange: baby food is exchanged for table food; formula for whole milk; bottle for sippy cup; the highchair for a booster seat; feeding himself with his fingers replaced by a spoon and fork; babbling talk to speaking, and the first unsteady steps are taken over by strides of confidence. This four-part series can help any parent stay one step ahead of each transition.
The Toddlerhood Transition (18 months – 3 years) – Toddlers have their own peculiar way. They begin speaking full sentences, laugh hilariously, show sudden food preferences, and learn to throw full tantrums. They are busy little people with an appetite for adventure, and curious minds ready to learn. Learning to manage a toddler’s day is not an easy task, but it is an important one if a parent hopes to lay down a right foundation on which the rest of the child’s life depends.
