Local NHS programmes
Bringing up children is a lot of fun but can also have its challenges and times when receiving some advice would be helpful.
Bracknell Forest families have FREE access to four online parenting guides which include top tips from childcare, education and NHS health experts.
- Understanding your pregnancy, labour, birth and your baby
- Understanding your baby
- Understanding your child 0 to 19 years (Zrozumieć swoje dziecko)
- Understanding your teenager’s brain
The online guides contain advice relevant to expectant parents, parents, grandparents and carers of children of all ages including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). The guides are also available in different languages.
Access to the guides is unlimited with no expiry date, so you can return as and when you need and want to. Each guide has between 5 to 11 sessions which last roughly 20 minutes each, there are also activities that can be carried out between courses.
