Incredible INFANTs® is the first curriculum in the Parenting: The First Three Years series. Incredible INFANTs is research-based, evidence-informed, and designed for a universal population of parents of infants from birth to 1 year of age. Focusing on promoting knowledge of infant development, the curriculum provides the opportunity to unify parents of newborns to promote mutual support and reduce parent isolation – a key protective factor in child abuse prevention.

Designed by parenting educators for parenting educators, Incredible INFANTs' facilitated approach to parenting education helps parents achieve their goals for their families and respects the diversity of those goals. Parenting educators give the program high marks for its ease-of-use.

Incredible INFANTs is designed to utilize a group dialogue methodology which respects the skills of the parenting educator, empowers families and can be adapted to suit a wide range of environments and populations to improve outcomes. The parenting educator acts as a guide to help families discover unrealized parenting knowledge. This approach raises the confidence of parents as they discover that they already possess the capabilities necessary to achieve their family goals.

Incredible INFANTs addresses key topics, including:

  • Current research on infant brain development
  • Self-care
  • Ways to provide encouraging experiences that benefit a baby’s growth
  • Healthy family routines and patterns

The discussion-focused sessions are straightforward and comprehensive, enabling the implementation of the program without a training requirement; however, extensive facilitator training is available through Parenting Now! and is highly beneficial for even the most experienced parenting educator.

The curriculum is modularized into 10 sessions, contained within separate facilitator booklets. This enables organizations to support multiple groups using a single set of materials.

Each session’s module booklet is formatted with icons that guide the parenting educator, identify key concepts and session agendas, and supply lists. Reproducible parent handouts are provided, along with forms for collecting feedback, etc. The curriculum comes with videos on DVD that act as conversation starters to enhance discussion and meeting flow.
