They use a parenting curriculum called SafeCare that goes over three areas: Parent Child Interaction/Parent infant interaction, Health, and Safety. PCI/PII go over setting up a structured schedule, keeping a routine, as well as maintaining that secure bond a parent has with their child. Health training involves education on interactions with children when they are ill and how to help prevent sickness, and the necessity of keeping accurate health records. The Safety portion involves the staff going over what common hazards that are in the home and how to remove or reduce them. The course is about 18 weeks, but they can work with a family for 6-10 months longer if needed.
