Our services

KidSTART Home Visitation

The programme consists of regular home visits to parents (or main caregivers) and their infants, from the antenatal stage until the child is three years old. Parents receive support in skills and practical knowledge across areas of child growth, health and nutrition.

KidSTART Groups (Supported Playgroups)

The sessions are based on the Supported Playgroups concept, and help parents and caregivers to build up skills in child development and parent-child bonding through evidence-based curricula of structured and purposeful play.

KidSTART Enhanced Support to Preschools

An additional resource to improve engagement with and support for parents, and to improve the child’s school readiness. This may include addressing barriers related to poor preschool attendance and referrals to other support programmes to ensure their developmental needs are addressed.
