Learning Ground has designed its Family Skills Program for parents who really want their kids to enjoy growing up, to have school lives without trouble, and grow into strong young men and women who can manage their own lives, and learn to appreciate others. 

Family Skills is a program needed by all parents. It is not easy bringing up children in a world full of electronic devices, where the use of mobile phones can be helpful but can also create harm, where electronic games can be good for a young brain but can also be harmful especially in some of the messages the games send. Family Skills is designed to support parents and older family members to help young ones face the challenges of growing up in a digital world. It also helps to keep the relationship between parent and child that we would all desire to have, trusting, and believing in one another. 

Family Skills works for every day families, it also works for families handling issues that are hard to handle and above all Family Skills Programs care about YOU the parent or adult who wants it all to work out for your child. 

Coming to Family Skills means you are already a winner. No matter what issues you face, and we all face being unsure from time to time about the way we are parenting, Family Skills staff are there for you, will keep discussion in your group entirely private and you will enjoy each and every time you have together. 

Family Skills is a program suitable to parents, grandparents, and others working with children or adolescents. 

A light meal is provided, and there is no charge for the program. Family Skills Program operates within the school Term.

We offer a day time program and babysitting is available for babies and children too young to attend school. 

We are taking enrolments now for each of the programs. Once enrolled parents are expected to attend six sessions, one each week for six weeks from the commencement date.
A qualifying certificate is issued to those who have attended each session. The program is experiential not a written program so it is necessary to attend each session for maximum benefit. The program is endorsed by Western Sydney University and can be useful to obtain credit points at TAFE, or for other child care program training. It is sponsored by Commonwealth Department of Social Services and The Neilson Foundation.
