This program consists of one group format class offered at our office in Kilworth (we are located in the Talbot Creek Midwife Office at 29 Kilworth Park Dr, Middlesex Centre, ON N0L 1R0) and includes four weeks of individual support. The initial class will cover the science of sleep and the ideal way to set up your home and life in order to create the healthiest sleep hygiene for your children. Topics will include your child’s stimulation levels, how they are able to decompress and creating the right sleeping environment. The class will give you the opportunity to become clear about the goals of the four week program. You will be sent home from the course with the basic next steps to get you going. The following four weeks of support are via email and phone. Each family will have different needs and different plans from that point. The beauty of this program is that it is unique to your family and your child’s needs. It typically takes about a month to get everyone sleeping better on a regular basis, which is why we offer support for so long following the class. The cost of our program is $200. The payment options are email transfer, cash or personal cheque sent directly to Tracey Petticrew (please email her for address information). We do require payment before the course date because numbers must be confirmed before we run the program. Both parents / caregivers are encouraged to be there but it is not mandatory. Families with children of all ages from 6 months plus are welcome to register for this course. The principles of good sleep are the same at any age. Each stage of development creates unique challenges but nothing is impossible when you begin to address all the components of good sleep hygiene!
