With Parenting with Purpose you will work in partnership with your child to build mutual empathy; respect and understanding. It encourages children to become aware and responsive to their own feelings; and allows parents to guide their child through dealing with these feelings in an age appropriate way; This programme supports parents and carers to better understand that behind every behaviour is a feeling – and how the stage of your child’s brain development can affect their ability to express this.
The Dry Arch Children’s Centre is a voluntary organisation which offers a range of support services to families such as childcare provision, SureStart programmes, parenting and youth support and guidance.
We have continued to expand and widen our services over the past 20 years, leading to two additional centres being developed in Limavady to support our main base in Glenshane Business Park, Dungiven. Our Children’s Centres in Dungiven and Limavady have both earned an excellent reputation for impressive quality, friendliness and dedication to the children and families we serve.
