AusParenting In Schools

Parenting Research Centre

AusParenting in Schools is a school-based parenting and family support strategy, designed to establish organisational structures, policies and practices that promote parent involvement.

The Parenting Research Centre is undertaking an evaluation of AusParenting in Schools with 18 primary schools in the Northern and Western regions of Melbourne (representing Department of Education and Catholic Education Office schools). The program is not currently available to other schools; however, you can stay informed about the project evaluation by reading What’s New, and visiting our section For Professionals for parenting information and resources.

AusParenting in Schools is a school-based parenting and family information and support strategy for primary schools, developed by the Parenting Research Centre.

It aims to promote the wellbeing and resilience of children by helping schools to:

  • strengthen family-school partnerships
  • encourage family involvement in their children’s education
  • provide parenting information and resources to all families in the school community.

Its development is based on theory and research into family-school partnerships and the parent involvement process, recognising the importance of a range of school, parent and family factors in shaping and maintaining parent involvement in the children’s education. It is also based on research-informed approaches to working with parents and families.
