The PECE (Positive Early Childhood Education) program supports Early Childhood Educators and, combined with Triple P – Positive Parenting Program support for parents in your community, gives children their best chance for a great future.
Educators who've done the PECE program say they feel more confident to meet children's needs, handle challenging behavior, and build better relationships. Parents who do Triple P programs report being able to manage behavior without harsh discipline, and with less stress and less conflict.
The PECE program has already had positive results in its first randomized controlled trial, and in six other ongoing evaluations. Triple P is one of the world's leading evidence-based parenting programs. Coordinated education for everyone (educators, directors and parents) about these skills and strategies helps create community-wide change, for adults as well as children.
Community PECE (incorporating Triple P) can be delivered using interactive, online learning, combined as required with in-person support. It's not just about lower costs now; it's about reducing social and mental health problems in the future. The result: your community reaps the benefits.
