Parent Support Worker

Who is your Parent Support Worker?

I am Jo Foster.  I have an extensive background working with children and families within Hampshire and surrounding areas.

I have experience supporting families at home as well as out in the community and within Childcare settings, including schools.

I have worked alongside many outside agencies and have a good knowledge of local resources and support available to families.

My knowledge extends from pregnancy and newborns through to teens and young adults.

What can your Parent Support Worker help with?

I am able to work with both parents and children.

I can come to visit families at home as well as within school and work flexibly around individual needs.

I can help with setting up and maintaining good routines, including mornings and bedtimes.

I can signpost you to local services and support families through this process.

I can offer advice on supporting your child through change.

I can suggest practical tips for managing behaviour and reinforcing positive steps at home.

I work Part time across Padnell Infant, Padnell Junior and Queens Inclosure Schools.  Please contact the Infant School Office if you would like to see me or talk to me over the telephone.
