"Schools are at their dynamic best when teachers and parents work hand-in-hand together." Michael Grose
Parenting Ideas aims to help people successfully raise confident, happy and resilient kids. Over the course of nearly twenty years, they've become one of Australia's most trusted sources of parenting education and support. Our school has a membership with Parenting Ideas, providing our school community with regular Insights articles and access to their webinars for parents at no cost (a saving of $39 per webinar). Details are provided to our school community via our parent portal on Compass.They connect parents and educators to expert child development knowledge through first class digital channels and accompany it with a genuine human interface to make parenting support more accessible and impactful.
