The first 10-week group of The Best of Friends® program, along with the first 8-week group for the BaseCamp® & ;program will take place in Term 3 2020 and will be closely supported by our team of facilitators. Each participant receives a copy of the exclusive workbook developed by Quirky Kid, while facilitators and parents have access to an extensive range of information, manuals and regular supervision as required.& ;
