Comments from families on Sure Start: 

  • On Courses: Very informative, made me rethink how I discipline my children…Think twice before shouting…Meeting other mums and learning stuff, learn how to be patient .. this course gave me insight into which toys are most beneficial to my kids.. Social and education aspects, talking to other mums about experiences.. Was so helpful gives you confidence and hearing other parents are going through some things makes you feel a little better.
