Parenting is one of the great joys of life, but also brings its challenges! At Little Seeds new parents find inspiration, a sense of community and a place to recharge ourselves with good company, a coffee and a laugh.
The Little Seeds Conversation Group offers parents of very young children from birth to two years of age a place to share their experiences of parenting, enjoy morning tea and support one another.
The Little Seeds Conversation Group is parent focused. During our sharing together we have wide ranging and rich discussions about issues of interest, including pregnancy, child development, breastfeeding, sleep routines, post-natal care and wellbeing.
The key aim of the group is to provide a safe nurturing and supportive place where parents feel able to share experiences, ask questions or just listen. We have two facilitators, so that children can be supported while you participate in the group. Little Seeds regularly invites guest speakers to address topics relating to parenting. We ask on these mornings for people to contribute $10 towards the cost of the speaker.
