ParentWise is pilot testing 3 different WiseJourney programmes, and we're recruiting a limited number of parents and caregivers of children from birth to three years old to participate!
In our WiseJourneys, you’ll experience the power of collective learning and problem-solving amongst parents and caregivers journeying together.
What you can expect:
- 4 Zoom sessions
- Conducted over 4 weeks
- Group sizes of 8 to 10
Each session will be guided by a ParentWise facilitator who will lead discussions and conversations on session-related topics as well as share how our research-based tips can be applied in your day-to-day context.
So, get ready to turn those Zoom cameras and mics on for a super interactive, personalised and all-round fun time of hearing and learning from others, while reflecting and growing deeply as a parent or caregiver yourself. After all, we’re all here to be the best we can for our children.

For Parents and Caregivers with children from birth to 36 months old
This journey will introduce you to the concept and practice of Mindful Parenting, and equip you with simple, practical ways you can apply this in your daily life. We’ll touch on issues of self-awareness, emotional regulation, stress management, and responsive caregiving.

For Parents and Caregivers with children from birth to 9 months old
This WiseJourney will give you insights into the world of infant communication before they even learn their first words. Babies aren’t the simple, passive beings one might think they are! There’s a lot more going on in their little minds than we realise, and we’ll give you tips on how to engage them effectively to nurture language development and strong relationships in these precious early months.
Session 1: Stop, look and listen Session 2: Creating language-rich environments Session 3: Love and language Session 4: Creating quality interactions
For Parents and Caregivers with children aged 24 to 36 months old
This WiseJourney will broaden your understanding of language development and communication in toddlers beyond the typically narrow academic focus on literacy skills. We want to remind parents that language learning has implications for your child’s development beyond the classroom, and help them create opportunities for learning to happen anytime, anywhere.
Session 1: Learning to read your child Session 2: Creating opportunities for language learning Session 3: Love and language Session 4: Emergent literacy: A child-led approach
