About the Programme
Stretch Graduate Home Visiting Programme is one of ELI’s newest research-based programme that focuses on our community's most vulnerable families with children aged between 3.5 and 7 years old. As a prevention and intervention programme, it aims to increase the parent’s skills and confidence regarding their children’s holistic development, enhance positive parenting practices and family wellbeing while increasing children’s school readiness, and transitions and building a strong base for long-term life success. The programme has two main components: children’s needs and parents’ needs while focusing on the family as a whole.
This programme will continue to upskill parents as home educators and adopt a blended learning approach through regular contact via phone calls/video calls, indoor or outdoor visits and appropriate home learning materials/resources.
The Role of the Home Visitor
Every second week, a Home Visitor will make contact with your family either in person or by phone (call or video call). The visit will be for up to one hour and this contact may then move to once a month. Our Home Visitor will support you to build parenting skills and confidence in supporting your child's development and education. Families will receive appropriate information, guidance, educational resources, sensory activities and more.
