If you have attended a KinderReady parenting class or find that you simply need a little extra assistance, contact KinderReady to set up a parenting consultation. A KinderReady coach will travel to the family's residence and work with parents individually to develop parent-to-child communication, practice "serve and return" responses and identify environmental and behavioral learning obstacles that hinder child development. This service is open to all parents, however, parenting consultations can be particularly valuable for new parents that may not be aware of important developmental stages in their newborn child.
