The Glengarry Early Parenting Centre

The Glengarry Early Parenting Centre provides support through a residential 4-night stay for the parent/primary caregiver and infants aged from 6 weeks – 12 months and is designed to help parents overcome the physical, emotional and social challenges a new baby can bring.

The Centre will support parents with common difficulties, including:

  • Infant sleep and settling
  • Establishing age-appropriate routines
  • Feeding difficulties and introducing solids
  • Reflux and colic
  • Adjusting to early parenting
  • Attachment

Families are guided by a specialised team of nurses experienced in maternity, mental health, child health and infant development. A multi-disciplinary team of lactation consultants, paediatricians, psychologists and psychiatrists are also available as an additional resource, depending on the challenge parents are experiencing. Together, our qualified staff provide an integrated approach in a nurturing environment, working in partnership with families to address their specific concerns.

Desired outcomes upon completion of the program may include increasing parent’s skills and confidence in responding to the needs of their baby, improving sleep and settling behaviours, establishing an age-appropriate routine or supporting secure bonding and attachment interactions between parents and their babies.

Our approach is based on the principles of responsive settling. Individual strategies can differ for each infant taking into consideration their age, habits, physical and emotional histories. We use age appropriate routines and individualise to meet the needs of both parent and baby, and their particular situation.
