Knowing what to do in an emergency is something all parents want to know. The Parenting Place offers small, hands-on, practical baby and child first aid courses that will empower you with all the knowledge and skills you need for when you least expect it.

The team at The Parenting Place is made up of Nicole Scurr, Kate Maynard & Chantelle Forsyth. Having been through the transition to parenthood themselves, they know firsthand just how hard it can be. With nine children between them, ranging from 4 through to 13 years old, they know the challenges that can present at a range of ages. As trained health professionals, they have worked with hundreds of parents from all walks of life, they know how the right support can create a happy, healthy, thriving family.

The Parenting Place

The Parenting Place team have a background in paediatric emergency, intensive care, cardiac, midwifery, maternal child health and lactation. They are passionate about ensuring all parents have access to evidence-based knowledge and hands-on training.
