The Foundry, 17 Oval Way, London, SE11 5RR

Here is your opportunity to learn about a new program: Infant 2 School

The program is beneficial for families that require ongoing support to address significant sustained adversity and they have missed MECSH/NFP eligibility criteria or need more support after MECSH/NFP.

1:30pm – 5:00pm

Infant 2 School delivers a structured programme based on the MECSH design, with a focus on the identified goals of the child and family. Evidence shows that Infant 2 School in the 2 to School years reduces potentially harmful behaviours (for example household smoking, amount of screen time) and increases positive outcomes (for example daily book reading and child development).

Infant 2 School employs a paraprofessional (for example nursery nurses) as the core contact for families. They provide a constant point of contact for the family supported by a multi-disciplinary care and learning team (health visitor, speech and language therapist, psychologist, counselor, support worker).

The conference will be held at The Foundry, 17 Oval Way, London, SE11 5RR
