NuParent is a unique parent education program created by Children’s Bureau. It is more than just a parent education program that focuses on issues of child development, nutrition, health and safety, etc. It is based on the understanding that theoretical information, while important, is not enough to provide the skills needed by parents today to effectively change how they look at parenting. Rather than being just theoretical, the program is developed with three important components:

  • A didactic or knowledge-enrichment section: Provides opportunities to improve and enhance their child-rearing knowledge and skills
  • A joint parent-child activity section: Enjoy fun activities that strengthen the parent/child bonding process with their child
  • A social support section: Have an opportunity to share and compare ideas, experiences, information, frustrations and successes

NuParent is a family support and development program with curriculums that cover all of the ages and stages from birth to 5 years. It focuses on helping parents to become the ‘best parents they can be.’ NuParent can be implemented in eight group sessions, or ‘one on one’ home visitations which may take a longer period of time to complete. The program encourages having the group sessions with children within certain age groups, such as: 0 to 6 months, 5 months to 1 year, 1 to 1 ˝ years, 1 ˝ to 2 years and 2 to 5 years. Parents participate with their children to enhance and improve both the learning and bonding process. There is ongoing group support for parents through the NuParent Club.

Agencies or organizations who provide parent education and development can develop a partnership with NuParent to use the NuParent program. This partnership agreement is very simple. (Click here for Partnership Agreement) The staff of the agency is trained in all curriculums by NuParent. They then offer the program at their sites. (Click here for Training Information)
