Washington County Family & Children First is excited to offer this highly acclaimed, evidence-based program FREE to parents in our community! The Incredible Years Preschool Basic (IYP) parenting program is designed for for parents with children ages 3-6 years.  IYP strengthens

parent-child interactions and attachment, reducing harsh discipline and

fostering parents' ability to promote children's social, emotional, and

language development. Parents also learn how to build school readiness

skills and are encouraged to partner with teachers and day care

professionals so they can promote children's emotional regulation

and social skills. In the parenting groups, trained Incredible Years®

facilitators use video clips of real-life situational vignettes to support

the training and trigger parenting group discussions, problem solving,

and practice exercises.
