Connecting families to their community.

These are some Incredible Years!

As back to school time kicks off and kids are starting new grades and learning new skills, "The Incredible Years Program" wants to help guide and educate parents toward successful engagement and interaction at home. From preschool and toddler basics to classes geared toward children with autism, The Incredible Years Program has a resource for your family. Programs are developed to engage children from babies through age 6. Online training workshops and parent guides will equip and empower parents as their children grow. Parent groups are delivered in 12-20 weekly group sessions of 2-3 hours. Group sessions focus on: strengthening parent-child interactions, nurturing relationships, reducing harsh discipline and fostering parents’ ability to promote children’s social, emotional and language development.

My friends, to love will always be risky. But giving a child a chance to  experience safety, belonging and love, that’s a risk I’m willing to take  and I hope you will too. -Julie Mavis, Recipes for Risk
