Incredible Years is a proven success story in helping all children improve their social and emotional skills and behaviour. 

Scoil Chaitríona runs the Incredible Years programmes in some of our classes, as well as Incredible Years teacher training, and now we can offer the programme for parents also.

  • · Wednesday mornings

Some other parents in Galway have said:

“I saw myself in some of the videos. I hope to take home what I have learned today and use it”

“Great session again this week. Am picking up more every week.”

Very thought provoking, many thoughts enter my head and I don’t want to lose them. Let’s go and practice!”
