ParentsNext is a government initiative delivered by Olympus solutions and Ability Options in the Wyong Local Government Area on the Central Coast.
Returning to work when you have young children can seem overwhelming. ParentsNext is designed to equip parents like you with the confidence and support to prepare for your employment future.
Your introduction to the program can take place at one of our sites, a community centre or a suitable, easy to access venue. You will get to know us and meet other parents in a supported environment.
There are many considerations when identifying suitable care for your child and how he/she can benefit from an early learning environment.
At your local Olympus Solutions employment office, you will get support to identify your skills, experience and knowledge and take part in activities to prepare for work.
At Stage 3 we’ll also assist you with building self-esteem, confidence and creating positive relationships.
We work closely with a network of employers to match the right people with the right job. This includes identifying volunteer or work experience opportunities.
ParentsNext is available through Ability Options Employment sites on the Central Coast - in Wyong, Bateau Bay and The Entrance. See Where to Find Us for details.
