ReadyStepGrow is a family-centred service which encourages and respects families' choices and their decision-making. The ReadyStepGrow team work collaboratively with families, recognising them as equal partners in supporting the child's learning & development. We achieve this with our committment to sensitivity, diversity and flexibility.
Having a premature baby may be an isolating experience as the baby needs to be nurtured differently than a full term baby. Hence there is a lack of conventional mother's knowledge and understanding from family and friends on how to nurture the infant - the advice fits term babies and children but does not fit preterm babies or children. Parents are left to feel they are battling alone. It is important to provide families with professional support as they manage and oversee the optimal development of their child. All ReadyStepGrow programs are evidence-informed and facilitated by professionals.
