We have developed a range of resources to support parents and those looking after small children.

We have created activity sheets and games that you can download and take anywhere with you, information sheets to help you with specific behaviours or concerns and general advice and guidance as your little ones go through different stages.

Our range of fun activity sheets can be downloaded free to help you to entertain your little ones. They range from sheets to help to avoid tantrums when shopping or on a car journey, to scavenger hunts and sing-alongs. We also have resources for specific events like Mother’s Day and Christmas.

We have also included a number of useful guides to support you with the wider challenges of parenting from childcare costs to concerns about speech and language development.

Our resources have been created with key professionals and experts working with children. They are simple and clear sources of advice for tackling those behaviours that you may find challenging, from tantrums and biting to potty training and fussy eating.

We have translated our information sheets and booklet into ten community languages. The resources are available in the following languages:

  • Arabic
  • Bengali
  • Chinese (Mandarin)
  • Czech
  • Pashto
  • Polish
  • Portuguese
  • Romanian
  • Slovak
  • Somali

Electronic copies of the resources can be requested via our mailbox
