Incredible Years

Incredible Years promotes emotional and social competence in young children and helps prevent aggression and emotional problems. The evidence-based program is a set of four comprehensive and developmentally based programs for parents, children and preschool teachers.  

Parent Education

Parent education classes include: infant/parent group, toddler/parent group, and a group for parents of children ages 3-7 years. This component of Incredible Years enhances parent/child relationships through coaching and modeling of positive behavior guidance, problem solving, and effective family communication.

Classroom Curriculum

The Incredible Years classroom-based curriculum promotes children's social behavior and school readiness by reducing classroom aggression and non-cooperation with peers and teachers. This curriculum is implemented at the Wilder Child Development Center. A site visit can be arranged through the Center.

Early childhood education professionals can be certified in the Incredible Years classroom curriculum. Wilder certified trainers help teachers develop effective strategies for collaboration between home and school.
