Early childhood partners will connect you to local support networks and services so you can meet other people with similar experiences or situations, if you want to. These parent-to-parent and community based support systems can build your knowledge through shared experiences and help you navigate the road ahead.
They can give you the opportunity to talk about your family’s experiences, and celebrate your child’s uniqueness with others with a similar experience. It’s a good way to build community with other families.
Some of the supports offered by early childhood partners may be in group situations such as information sessions and parent workshops. This will also give you the opportunity to connect with other families in a similar situation to build your network. You may be able to share your knowledge and experience with other families who will benefit from this as well.
