Parenting Support at New Beginnings

Parenting Support at New Beginnings

New Beginnings staff know that providing help and support to young parents can really help their success in the classroom as well as their start as parents. 

Our Parent Support Worker assists parents directly to help with issues such as housing, relationships, employment, guardianship and more.

We also offer different types of parenting classes throughout the year so parents have a chance to understand how their child is developing and be introduced to a variety of parenting techniques. 

Parenting Classes

New Beginnings’ parenting classes are offered throughout the school year. 

Nobody’s Perfect is a six week course for students and their partners, to talk about all aspects of parenting. Each session is two hours. This class focuses on parenting children over age one. Childcare and light snacks are provided. Parents are encouraged to bring their partners or people they co-parent with. 

Mental Wellness Parenting is a class for those who are actively parenting while coping with depression and/or anxiety. Parents will develop new strategies to support mental wellness for themselves and their families. 

Healthy Relationships is a six to eight week group that explores the meaning of healthy relationships from partners to parenting to self awareness. These sessions are run by the Parent Support Worker and an Archway counsellor.
