Receive advice and support from our Early Years Nurse regarding your child's physical and developmental milestones.

Are you a parent looking for advice about raising your newborn to two-year-old child? Join the Cradling Arms program in your community.

If this is your first time joining the group please call to confirm the time and location. Occasionally changes occur due to other circumstances so, please be sure to check the “Events Calendar” on our website for any changes or cancellations.

In this program for newborns and toddlers, each individual child’s strengths and needs are identified through a functional developmental assessment. Families are assisted to access a variety of professional services as needed, which could include a physio/occupational therapist, speech/language pathologist, family counselling, psychometric testing or behavioural intervention.

  • Increase knowledge of expected developmental and growth milestones.
  • Meet other parents, share experiences and receive peer support to solve common parenting problems.
  • Learn about breast and infant feeding guidelines, infant massage, bedtime routines, introducing solid foods, how to deal with a fussy eater, toilet training, and child playtime.
  • Connect with community and health professional resources.
