The Preschool Basic parenting program strengthens parent-child interactions and attachment, reducing harsh discipline and fostering parents’ ability to promote children’s social, emotional, and language development. Parents also learn how to build school readiness skills and are encouraged to partner with teachers and day care professionals so they can promote children’s emotional regulation and social skills. In the parenting groups, trained Incredible Years® facilitators use video clips of real-life situational vignettes to support the training and trigger parenting group discussions, problem solving, and practice exercises.

+The Preschool Basic Program Topics
  • Program 1 – Strengthening Children’s Social Skills, Emotional Regulation and School Readiness Skills
  • Program 2 – Using Praise and Incentives to Encourage Cooperative Behavior
  • Program 3 – Positive Discipline – Rules, Routines and Effective Limit Setting
  • Program 4 – Positive Discipline – Handling Misbehavior
