What is Terrific Toddlers?
Terrific Toddlers is a four week program for all parents of children ages 1 to 4 years. Although it is based on a government developed curriculum, it is non-punitive and attachment-parenting friendly. Topics covered are: Parenting Styles, Picky Eating, Oral Health, Temperament, Development, Attachment, Sleep Issues, Toilet Training, Separation Anxiety, Brain Development, Play, Self-Esteem, Communication, Safety, Feelings, Anger, Temper Tantrums, and Discipline
"This class helped me to better understand the toddler's perspective." Brigette R.
"I found good advice from both the instructor and other participants. Just hearing other parents facing the same issues and behaviours and offer tips was very helpful. The picky eating information alone has made our household much more peaceful." Lynn O.
"Terrific Toddlers is a great course that is proactive and really lets you know what is coming up. The instructors were non-judgemental, caring and most of all, 'real'. They have been there and shared really useful tips!" John S.
All courses are taught by Family Life Educators with at least five years Parent Educator Experience and University Degrees and/or Certification in Family Life Education. All instructors are parents!
We offer Terrific Toddlers as a four week online webinar available anywhere and a four week physical, in-person class in Calgary
