June Network meeting
Home grown: how SKIP and the Parenting Resource can help build the early language capability of Kiwi kids, parents and family services
SKIP is an important resource for anyone working with families, and families themselves. SKIP's resources are designed to support families to raise children in loving ways. SKIP is going to showcase how their resources and strategies can encourage more talk and interaction as a central factor in children's wellbeing. You'll come away from this meeting with really useful information and ideas that you can apply in your work and share with families.
