Sleep Smart: Online Course Series

The Sleep Smart online guide to safe sleeping and settling, has been developed for health professionals and early childhood educators working with families and young children.

At the foundation of our training is the most scientifically informed knowledge and best practice, and an understanding that infancy and early childhood is a critical time for the development of emotional and mental health.

In each course we will take you through a series of modules and lessons. Each lesson includes a combination of slides and videos – with the videos delivered from a parent’s perspective – to help you as professionals and educators find the right language to use with the families you work with and support.
