    WiseJourneys For Parents With Children From Birth To 36 Months Old

    Shared parental experiences are a key component for learning. The WiseJourneys programme was created as a learning stream designed from research findings and tips by Temasek Foundation, in partnership with SEED Institute that aims to equip parents in a constructive and science-based manner.

    3 different WiseJourneys programmes are available for free registration by parents and caregivers of children from birth to 36 months old. Each WiseJourneys group goes through 4 facilitated online sessions to learn parenting tips.

    In WiseJourneys, you’ll experience the power of collective learning and problem-solving amongst parents and caregivers journeying together.

    What you can expect:

    4 Zoom sessions
    Conducted over 4 weeks
    Support groups

    Each session will be guided by a WiseJourneys facilitator who will lead discussions and conversations on session-related topics as well as share how research-based tips can be applied in your day-to-day context.

    So, get ready to turn those Zoom cameras and mics on for a super interactive, personalised and all-round fun time of hearing and learning from others, while reflecting and growing deeply as a parent or caregiver yourself.

    Session 2: Creating opportunities for language learning
    Session 3: Love and language
    Session 4: Emergent literacy: A child-led approach
